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.

Literature Meeting, Mondays 7:00 to 8:00 PM
Christ Lutheran Church, 6500 E. Stearns St., Long Beach, CA
This literature meeting assembles in a small, cozy room, which has a comfy sofa and a club chair as well as an actual padded church pew. The intimate setting is conducive to open, honest sharing and a genuine feeling of fellowship and camaraderie.
This year the meeting is focusing on Voices of Recovery, one of OA’s daily readers. The format calls for the leader to read the page of the day, which is then used as the topic for discussion. Typically, there are approximately 10 to 12 members present, and generally all who attend have the opportunity to share. Pitches are timed at three minutes with one minute remaining to wrap up.
It's a great way to start off the week in recovery. Join us!
