The process for logging on and attending online Overeaters Anonymous meetings varies from meeting to meeting, as each virtual meeting has its own sign-in instructions, and there are normally various ways to access each meeting. To find an Overeaters Anonymous online meeting, visit the OA website, click on the Meetings tab on the top-left of the page, and then click the Online Meeting tab.
From this page, users can then select their time zone to find a list of available online meetings. The list includes the specific URL for each meeting. After entering that URL into an Internet browser, a user can then refer to the Login Procedures page under the Open Details link to access the specific log-in instructions for that meeting.
Overeaters Anonymous online meetings are available in a variety of different languages, including English, Spanish, Greek, Portuguese and Finnish. Overeaters Anonymous also holds regular telephone meetings and face-to-face meetings. The organization has more than 6,500 registered meetings in more than 80 countries.
Both the virtual and telephone meetings work in the same way as face-to-face meetings, with members sharing their personal experiences about their struggles with overeating. All virtual and telephone meetings are required to practice the Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions of Overeaters Anonymous.
