Welcome to OA, Welcome Home

Overeaters Anonymous 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 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 Twelve Steps of OA to those who still suffer.

Welcome Newcomers!

Are you a newcomer to OA during COVID-19?

Overeaters Anonymous offers a program of recovery from compulsive eating using the Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions of OA. Meetings and other tools provide a fellowship of experience, strength and hope where menbers 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, gain or maintenance; or obesity or diets. It addresses physical, emotional and spiritual well being. It is not a religous organization and does not promote any particular diet. If you want to stop your compulsive eating, welcome to Overeaters Anonymous.

The following links should answer most of your questions:

As you can see from the above links, anorexics, bulimics, compulsive exercisers and food addicts are all welcome and have found recovery in OA.

If you would like more information, please email us at info@gpioa.org or call us at (412) 765-3004. Or, you can purchase OA literature at a local meeting or by visiting the Online OA Bookstore.

We hope to see you at one of our local meetings or events. Welcome to OA, welcome home!

For Newcomers During COVID-19

It's never easy being new, and it's especially difficult now when there are so few face to face meetings. If you're uncomfortable attending a virtual meeting with strangers, call a meeting contact from a group near you and ask if there are any members who would be willing to meet you in person before you attend their virtual meeting. There's no guarantee that a group will be able to accomodate a request to meet you in person, but all groups will have members who are willing and able to talk to you one or one over the phone or via video chat before you attend their meeting so that you feel more comfortable.
