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 overeating and to carry this message of recovery to those who still suffer.
Unlike other organizations, OA is not just about weight loss, gain or maintenance; or obesity or diets. It addresses physical, emotional and spiritual well-being. It is not a religious organization and does not promote any particular diet. If you want to stop your compulsive eating, welcome to Overeaters Anonymous.
This site was established in November 2004, and is maintained by the Greater Omaha Intergroup of Overeaters Anonymous.
We focus on local and area-wide OA on this site.

- An article exploring post-combat compulsive eating within the military and how OA can help.
- A story from a seasoned psychotherapist who gained a deeper understanding of and relief from her compulsive overeating through OA.
- An excerpt from “The Role of Eating in Recovery from Compulsive Eating,” published in the new Overeaters Anonymous, Third Edition.
- And much more.
Please let members, groups, and service boards know the new Courier is available to read and share with professionals in their communities. For suggestions on how to reach out to the professional community, see OA’s Guidelines for Professional Outreach Committees on the “OA Guidelines” page under Members/Groups on oa.org (http://www.oa.org/pdfs/poguidelines.pdf).
