What Are We?

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.

Who Are We?

The Suffolk County Intergroup is a fellowship of OA groups in Suffolk County on Long Island, NY. While individual meetings serve individual OA members, an Intergroup serves the needs of the meetings by providing services that would be difficult for an individual meeting to provide, such as meeting schedules, literature, marathons and retreats. We hope this website helps to carry the OA message to this whole area and beyond. Thanks for visiting.
