Overeaters Anonymous is a fellowship of men and women 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 behaviours and to carry the message of recovery through the Twelve Steps of OA to those who still suffer

What is Region Ten?

Region Ten consists of Overeaters Anonymous meetings and intergroups from the following geographical locations: Australia, New Zealand, Japan, China, South Korea, South East Asia, and the Pacific Islands.

Region Ten is one of the ten geographical regions – each organised to serve communication between groups, intergroups and service boards within its area. The Virtual Region supports virtual meetings and virtual service bodies of OA worldwide.
