Overeaters Anonymous (North of England Intergroup)
Overeaters Anonymous (OA) uses the Twelve Step programme of recovery to support people who are dealing with compulsive eating and compulsive food behaviours. The group is for anyone with who has issues with food, whether that be overeating, anorexia or bulimia.
They believe that compulsive eating causes or contributes to illness on three levels: emotional, physical and spiritual. OA is not a diet and calories club, nor do they endorse any particular plan of eating. They practice 'abstinence' by refraining from compulsive eating and compulsive food behaviours, whilst working towards a healthy body weight. They do this by practising the Twelve Step programme of recovery, one day at a time.
There is no need to register beforehand to attend a group - you can simply turn up. Or you can contact them if you have any questions or would like to meet up with someone before the meeting. There are no fees for OA membership - each group is self-supporting.
There are face to face meetings as well as telephone and online meetings available.
