Find a Meeting

“Meetings are gatherings of two or more compulsive overeaters who come together to share their personal experience, and the strength and hope OA has given them. Though there are many types of meetings, fellowship with other compulsive overeaters is the basis of them all. Meetings give us the opportunity to identify and confirm our common problem and share the gifts we receive through this program.”
