What is Overeaters Anonymous? How It Can Help You


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.

Learn more about OA here.

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 organization, political movement, ideology, or religious doctrine; we take no position on outside issues.

Some answers to questions you may have…

Our primary purpose is to abstain from compulsive eating and compulsive food behaviors and to carry the message of recovery through the Twelve Steps of OA to those who still suffer.

Some questions for you…

Sponsorship Day is August 19

“Sponsorship is one of the keys to success in our program”. Sponsorship is such an important tool that at the last World Service Business Conference it was voted on to proclaim the 3rd Saturday in August as “Sponsorship Day”. There are many ways to acknowledge Sponsorship day.

  • Call your sponsor!
  • Call a sponsee you haven’t heard from.
  • During your meeting the third week of August hold a special focus meeting about Sponsorship.
  • Read the two OA pamphlets: A Guide for Sponsors and Sponsoring through the Twelve Steps to answer questions you might have about Sponsorship or guide a discussion.
  • Invite a speaker to your meeting to discuss sponsorship.
