Overeaters Anonymous is a fellowship of individuals who, through shared experience, strength, and hope, are recovering from compulsive eating. Our primary purpose is to abstain from compulsive eating and compulsive food behaviors—including binge eating, restricting, starving, purging, and over-exercising—and to carry the message of recovery to those who still suffer. We welcome everyone who feels they have a problem with food.
The OA program is patterned after that of Alcoholics Anonymous (AA). As our personal stories attest, the Twelve Step program of recovery works as well for compulsive eaters as it does for alcoholics.
We invite you to explore this website to learn more about OA and to find information specific to Unity Intergroup, the service body for OA groups in Central and Southern Minnesota and Western Wisconsin. Learn more about OA.
