What is Overeaters Anonymous?

Overeaters Anonymous is a Fellowship of individuals who, through shared experience, strength and hope, are recovering from compulsive eating. 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 to carry this message of recovery to those who still suffer. If you are new to OA, don’t give up before the miracle happens. 

OA works. It really does. 



What is OA Region 8? 

OA Region 8 is a.k.a. “SOAR 8” -- The region is comprised of the USA's southeast states: Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Tennessee. It also includes Puerto Rico, South America, Central America, and all of the Caribbean Islands. Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands have long been a part of our region, and in July 2001 the rest of the Caribbean Islands were officially welcomed into Region 8 along with Central America and South America, as well. SOAR 8 is one of ten areas around the world formed to serve the regional needs of Overeaters Anonymous.
