Overeaters Anonymous is a twelve-step programme patterned after that of Alcoholics Anonymous and is not affiliated with any weight-loss programme or group. Further, we are not experts about obesity, weight loss or food addiction. The primary purpose of OA is to carry the message that recovery is possible. We simply want to share our experience with others who desire our help.
