Overeaters Anonymous is a fellowship of individuals who, through shared experience, strength and hope, are recovering from compulsive eating. 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 organization, political movement, ideology or religious doctrine; we take no position on outside issues. Our primary purpose is to abstain from compulsive eating and to carry the message of recovery through the 12 steps to those who still suffer.

OA’s World Service Organization (WSO) recently distributed the following pledge suggesting that groups incorporate it into their weekly meetings:
“Always to extend the hand and heart of OA to all who share in my compulsion.  
For this I am responsible.”
