OA Inland Empire
To the Newcomer
Overeaters Anonymous is a fellowship of men and women from all walks of life who meet in order to help solve a common problem - compulsive overeating, which includes obesity, anorexia and bulimia. The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop eating compulsively.
Please read "Our Invitation to You", check out our website, and attend a meeting. Whatever your problem with food, OA welcomes you.
If you have any further questions, call our hotline at (951) 715-2080. You can leave a message and your call will be returned within 48 hours.

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.
If your community does not have an existing meeting and you would like to start one, feel free to contact the 5th Tradition Representative using our web form on the Contact page.
Announcement: The R2 Convention for 2021 will be held in San Diego!
I put my hand in yours, and together we can do what we could never do alone.
No longer is there a sense of hopelessness, no longer must we each depend upon our own unsteady willpower.
We are all together now, reaching out our hands for power and strength greater than ours,
And as we join hands, we find love and understanding...
Beyond our wildest dreams!

Have you been looking for a way to be of service?
Our OA Inland Empire Intergroup is looking for people to join the 5th Tradition committee and spread the life saving message of the 12 Steps to those who still suffer.

UPDATE YOUR MEETING CONTACT INFO
To receive important information to help your meeting thrive:
We need every meeting to identify a contact person, who will receive Intergroup correspondence and share it with their group members.
NOTE: Whenever the group contact person changes, the group needs to notify the intergroup by email: firstname.lastname@example.org, providing the name, phone number, email address, and snail mail address of the new contact.
Also, anyone can be added to our email lists simply by requesting to be added via the same above email address. However, in addition, each group needs a specific designated representative.
We send out these communications to keep all groups and individuals informed about what’s going on in the Intergroup. Some examples of our regular communications are the Lifeboat, upcoming workshops and marathon meetings, and Intergroup meeting information to help all groups.
