Welcome to Overeaters Anonymous Melbourne. Overeaters Anonymous started in California, USA in January 1960. The first OA meeting was held in Melbourne in the mid 1970's . Over the years more meetings have been set up throughout metropolitan Melbourne and country areas. Meetings are held every day and you will see anywhere from three to thirty people at one meeting.
Our Melbourne office at 70 Punt Rd, Windsor is staffed by volunteers, and is not open outside meeting times which are held at noon Thursdays and 11.00 am Sundays.
Members come from all walks of life, shapes, sizes, ages and religious denominations but what we have in common is our desire to stop eating compulsively. Many of us have lost weight and are living lives we never dreamed possible.
There is no need to suffer alone, we urge you to attend a meeting where you will be warmly welcomed. Our pledge is 'Always to extend the hand and heart of OA to all who share my compulsion; for this I am responsible.'
