OA.org has a New Look!

Now oa.org does even more to attract newcomers and help members find program information faster, plus it’s designed to look great on any computer or mobile device.

The new homepage speaks directly to still-suffering compulsive eaters, directing them first to the Fifteen Questions and Find a Meeting.

OA members can find comprehensive information, resources, and support to work the program in the Members section of the website atoa.org/members—bookmark this link for faster access and click “Menu” at the top to explore everything available.

Similarly, OA groups and service bodies can find important documents and information in the Groups/Service Bodies section atoa.org/groupsservice-bodies.

Other new and improved features include:

With our new site, OA is ready to attract newcomers from around the globe and help strengthen recovery for compulsive overeaters and those with compulsive food behaviors.

Look for similar improvements to the Spanish and French websites in the future.

February 27th is Unity Day

Every year on the last Saturday of February, OA recognizes the strength of the Fellowship worldwide with Unity Day.

On Saturday, February 27th, at 1:30 p.m. CST, OA members across the globe pause to reaffirm the strength inherent in OA’s unity.

As you pause, meditate on the importance of OA in your life. If you would like to, consider writing a short entry on how OA’s unity has affected your life, and send your writing to oadallasweb@gmail.com.  I’ll post some of the anonymous entries on the page for all of our reflection.


Change to OA Preamble

Please alert your group to the change in the OA Preamble. It now reads:

“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.”
