About Greater Ann Arbor Area OA

Save the Date!  Our Intergroup hosts a Toledo workshop every November, celebrating the OA holiday “International Day of Experiencing Abstinence, ” or IDEA.  This year, the event is shaping up to be a remarkable experience.  “Faith or Food? Higher Power at the Holidays” will feature a speaker, small group discussions, as well as plentiful OA literature for sale.  Click here for a flyer.

Intergroup meeting changes: The November IG meeting is cancelled due to the IDEA workshop.  The December IG meeting is moved up to 12/5/2015.  Visitors are always welcome! Join us. We meet for one hour only, from 11:30am-12:30pm at St. Joseph Mercy Hospital Women’s Center, Second Floor Classroom #3. ~10/22/2015

Ideas that work: consider adding a column to your we care list for ride shares.  Members can indicate if they need a ride or can provide a ride to the meeting.  Many recovery speakers talk about their “meeting after the meeting” during car rides and how this time helped their program.  ~10/22/2015

It’s time to think about November and December holidays and meetings.  Please ask your group how to handle possible closures during these months. We will post updated announcements here as they come in. If you are interested in going to a dedicated holiday meeting during these months, please bring up the topic to your meeting’s Intergroup representative.  UPDATE:  the Saturday 10am will keep its regular schedule throughout November, December, and January. ~ 11/13/2017


Welcome! 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.  ~OA Preamble, updated May 2015
