NOTE: during Covid crisis, we are only listing online and phone meetings

Zoom is a web-based video conferencing tool (and a mobile app) that allows users to meet online, with or without video, or to easily connect via a standard phone. Internet-enabled devices (such as computers, tablets or smart phones) may join and "see" everyone in the meeting - even share files. Others joining via a phone have no video access, but may hear and share easily in the meeting.

What is Overeaters Anonymous?

Overeaters Anonymous (OA) offers a program of recovery from compulsive overeating using the Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions of OA. Worldwide meetings and other tools provide a fellowship of experience, strength and hope where members respect one another's anonymity. OA charges no dues or fees; it is self-supporting through member contributions.

Unlike other organizations, OA is not just about weight loss, obesity or diets—it addresses physical, emotional and spiritual well-being. OA is not a religious organization and does not promote any particular diet. To address weight loss, OA encourages members to develop a food plan with a health care professional and a sponsor. If you want to stop your compulsive eating, welcome to Overeaters Anonymous.

Check out the information on our New To OA pages.

OA is open to people with all types of bodies. You do not have to be overweight to benefit from the program. As Tradition 3 states: "The only requirement for OA membership is a desire to stop eating compulsively."

It is possible to eat compulsively without gaining weight —as in cases of anorexia or bulimia. People with these eating disorders can also benefit from the program.
