The Greater Ann Arbor Area Intergroup serves OA members within a 50-mile radius of Ann Arbor, including parts of Ohio. Our purpose is to carry the message of recovery to those with the problem of eating compulsively by fostering the practice of the Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions of Overeaters Anonymous, guided by the Twelve Concepts of OA Service, and to serve and represent its member groups. We also support and liaise with regional and national OA.

In early 2020 Barb K, a Region 5 representative, created an online survey for us and lead us through a Day of Renewal based on the input from our members. Key results of the day can be found here and here. Special thanks to Barb K. Region 5 Representative, for her fantastic leadership and assistance.

Check out the Position Guidelines we’ve created to help members understand the roles and responsibilities of this service body.

We ask each meeting to send a representative to Intergroup and encourage all members who wish to serve to attend meetings. Currently, we meet at 11:15 a.m. (after the Saturday 10 AM meeting) at the Women’s Center of St. Joseph Mercy Hospital in Ann Arbor on the third Saturday of the month. For more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org or ask your meeting’s contact person or your Intergroup representative.
We offer meetings every day of the week, several times a day. Please check our calendar to find a meeting near you. We suggest calling the meeting contact person for meetings that fall on major holidays. Many of us especially like to meet on those days.
We are part of Region 5 of Overeaters Anonymous. Please visit their website for additional information on activities and workshops available in our regional area.
