OA South Bay Intergroup
The South Bay Intergroup of Overeaters Anonymous serves the entire South Bay area with meetings in Gardena, Inglewood, Lakewood, Long Beach, Manhattan Beach, Redondo Beach, San Pedro, Seal Beach, and Torrance, California.
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.*
According to OA's Seventh Tradition "...financial support of OA is our responsibility as members of the Fellowship. We don't ask for or accept support from outside sources."** Therefore, if you are a member of the Overeaters Anonymous fellowship, please consider making a donation today. Your support is much appreciated.
