San Diego County Intergroup Incorporated of Overeaters Anonymous

Newcomers? Need help? Call us (619) 521-2538

Our Purpose: 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 compulsive food behaviors and to carry the message of recovery through the Twelve Steps of OA to those who still suffer.

Unity with Diversity Policy: "As we extend the heart and hand of the OA Fellowship to those who still suffer, let us be mindful of OA's Unity with Diversity Policy, which respects our differences, yet unites us in the solution to our common problem. Whatever problem you may have with food, you are welcome at a meeting, regardless of race, creed, nationality, religion, gender identity, sexual orientation, or any other trait." (from OA World Service)

Hear a 5-minute excerpt from Hearing is Believing, an inspiring collection of interviews depicting the journeys of several OA members from despair to recovery and serenity. Hear more podcasts from Overeaters Anonymous.
