Do you have feelings of guilt and remorse after overeating?

Overeaters Anonymous 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.
It 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.
