Information for Healthcare Professionals

Overeater Anonymous does not concern itself with the medical aspects of obesity, anorexia, or bulimia but rather with the compulsive nature of overeating and other eating disorders. OA believes that compulsive overeating is a threefold disease: physical, emotional, and spiritual, which like alcoholism and drug abuse can be arrested but not cured. The OA approach to this problem is a resource that can enhance, not replace, your existing treatment programs for these patients.
