About Overeaters Anonymous

Overeaters Anonymous (OA) is a Fellowship of individuals, who through shared experience, strength and hope, are recovering from compulsive eating and compulsive food behaviours. If you have issues with food, whether that be overeating, anorexia or bulimia, we welcome you.

We believe that compulsive eating is a disease that causes or contributes to illness on three levels: emotional, physical and spiritual. OA is not a diet and calories club, nor do we endorse any particular plan of eating. We practice ‘abstinence’ by refraining from compulsive eating and compulsive food behaviours, whilst working towards a healthy body weight. We do this by practising the Twelve Step programme of recovery, one day at a time.

OA meetings take place all over the world and our programme is patterned after the Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions of Alcoholics Anonymous. For more details about the Fellowship and the OA programme, see OAGB’s website at www.oagb.org.uk or the international OA World Service website at www.oa.org.

The North of England Intergroup encompasses meetings in the North East of England, Yorkshire and Nottingham. Representatives from each of the individual groups who form part of the Intergroup meet up once every three months to share what is happening in their own areas and to discuss matters affecting the wider OA Fellowship. If Intergroup area groups would like to send a contribution to Intergroup, please contact us by email and we will be happy to pass on details of how to do that. If your group would like to join the Intergroup email list to find out about forthcoming meetings (OA members are always welcome) and receive other OA news, please email us.

To find your local meeting, see our Meetings page, which gives an overview of the regular OA meetings taking place in our Intergroup area, and contains a link to the OAGB website page that contains up to date details for each meeting, such as venue and special focus etc. There is no need to register beforehand to attend a group – simply turn up at the venue at the time stated and you will be made very welcome, or contact the number listed if you have any questions or would like to meet up with someone before the meeting. There are no dues or fees for OA membership – each group is self-supporting in accordance with OA’s Seventh Tradition.
