Working the OA program

Overeaters Anonymous (OA) is a fellowship of individuals who, through shared experience, strength and hope, are recovering from compulsive overeating. We welcome everyone who wants to stop eating compulsively. There are no dues or fees for members; we are self-supporting through our own contributions, neither soliciting nor accepting outside donations. OA is not affiliated with any public or private organisation, political movement, ideology or religious doctrine; we take no position on outside issues.

Our primary purpose is to abstain from compulsive overeating and to carry the message of recovery to those who still suffer.

OA caters for all who have a problem with their eating, such as compulsive overeaters, anorexics and bulimics.

For more information on Overeaters Anonymous and how it works, go to About OA.

Overeaters Anonymous has a range of program material and literature including The Twelve Steps, The Twelve Traditions, The Twelve Concepts of OA Service, Just for Today, I Put My Hand In Yours, and Welcome Home.

Program material and literature can be ordered online.

We invite you to attend an Overeaters Anonymous meeting to meet others who are working the program, and hear how it could work for you.
