MEN OF OA


Are you the only man in your meeting? Do you have trouble freely sharing in meetings
of mostly women? The World Service Survey done in 2010 revealed that only about 13%
of our fellowship consists of men! If you want to connect with other men in OA,
there are many meetings, by phone and in-person, with a Special Focus for
Men, as well as several other ways you can connect with men in the program.

WHAT IS OA...

 

  Program Basics

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.


  The Twelve Steps

The Twelve Steps are the heart of the OA recovery program. They offer a new way of life that enables the compulsive eater to live without the need for excess food. Their greatest importance lies in the fact that they work! They enable compulsive eaters and millions of otherTwelve-Steppers to lead happy, productive lives. They represent the foundation upon which OA is built.
