OA Newcomer Meeting

While all Overeaters Anonymous meetings are open to newcomers, certain OA group meetings have been designated as OA newcomer meetings.


This special focus means that when a newcomer attends, regular attendees of the meeting welcome the newcomer by sharing their experience, strength and hope in OA.


Newcomers are given a welcome packet that contains various OA pamphlets. Also, the newcomer may receive a “We Care” list, a list of names and phone numbers of OA members who are happy to take a call and share their experience in OA or answer any questions, an “Inner Voice” newsletter, and an NFI meeting list.

Arlington meeting was my first introduction to OA. I could not have been treated more respectfully and most important “tenderly”. Compassion and dedication is the driving force of these newcomer meetings. Take a chance and go, you only have your pain to lose. So very glad I did!
