Overeaters Anonymous meetings are gatherings of two or more compulsive eaters: overeaters, bulimics, anorexics and others suffering from eating disorders, who come together to share their personal experience and the strength and hope OA has given them. They are usually held once a week and run from an hour to an hour and a half. Though there are many types of meetings, fellowship with other compulsive eaters is the basis of them all.
Members of the Central New Mexico Intergroup represent over 20 meetings from Alamogordo and Las Cruces in the south, Albuquerque and Gallup in central New Mexico and Durango, Colorado in the north. Overall, OA has about 7,000 registered meetings in over 80 countries. If you can’t find a face-to-face meeting in your area, consider an online meeting or telephone meeting. These are a great resource when face-to-face meetings can’t be found in your area or you find yourself housebound for one reason or another. Many of our members have found strong recovery through these meetings.
Meeting Information — Please be aware that meeting information is as current as the communication we (CNMI) and the OA World Service Office (WSO) receive from each group. Though each meeting shows a contact name and phone number, it isn’t necessary to call a meeting’s contact person to attend a meeting. However, the contact person can confirm the meeting place and time, give you directions to the meeting, and answer questions about the program.
