OA Wichita It's not a diet club, it's a 12-step program

Welcome!

YOU ARE NOT ALONE ANYMORE!

OA (Overeaters Anonymous) is a fellowship of compulsive overeaters, anorexics and bulimics who use AA's Twelve Steps and Traditions to recover from food addiction.

This website is hosted by the Overeaters Anonymous Wichita Intergroup and offers meeting and event information for southeastern Kansas as well as links and information for nearby areas.

ARE YOU ALWAYS THINKING ABOUT FOOD?

Are you a compulsive overeater, anorexic or bulimic?

man in a circle of food

If you are feeling scared, you’re not alone; we’ve been there.

If you cannot stop bingeing on food, you’re not alone; we’ve been there.

If you eat because you are angry, lonely, tired, or for any reason other than hunger, you’re not alone; we’ve been there.

If you are ashamed of your body size or shape, you’re not alone; we’ve been there.

If you have tried to diet, only to regain the lost weight and then some, you're not alone; we’ve been there.

If you have tried to control your weight by using laxatives or vomiting, you’re not alone; we’ve been there.

If you feel you are not good enough, you’re not alone; we’ve been there.

If you think you’re the only person who ever used food the way you do, you’re not alone; we’ve been there.

If you think that life would be perfect if only you had a better body, you’re not alone; we’ve been there. And we're here for you now.

Welcome to Overeaters Anonymous.

This program works if you work it.
