The Sacramento Valley Intergroup of Overeaters Anonymous (SVIOA) is a service body affiliated with Overeaters Anonymous (OA) and serves local OA meetings in the Sacramento, Placer, Yolo, El Dorado, Amador, Nevada, Yuba, San Joaquin, Sutter and Colusa counties.
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.

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 REMEMBER OUR 7TH TRADITION
OA is self-supporting through our own contributions. While telephone and virtual meetings may have few if any direct expenses, our 7th Tradition reminds us of the importance of supporting our Fellowship as a whole. Intergroup, Region 2, and the World Service Office needs our support to help carry the message to other compulsive overeaters.
