Jersey Shore Intergroup

The Jersey Shore Intergroup of Overeaters Anonymous supports the OA 12-step recovery program from compulsive eating at the Jersey Shore area. We have meetings from  Lakewood to Cape May covering Ocean, Atlantic and Cape May counties.  See the ‘Find a Meeting’ tab for a complete listing.

The Jersey Shore Intergroup’s primary purpose is to aid those with the problem of compulsive eating, and to serve and represent the OA meetings from which the organization is formed.

Jersey Shore Intergroup meets once a month on the second Saturday of the month from 10:45 am to 12:00 pm at Southern Ocean County Hospital, immediately following the Saturday morning meeting.  See the Events section for the exact dates.  All area meetings and members are strongly encouraged to become active participants in helping the Intergroup carry out its mission.

The Intergroup offers support and resources to local meetings and members. JSIG maintains a web site, a monthly newsletter, a meeting directory and a telephone hotline. The group provides outreach and educates healthcare and other professionals about the Overeaters Anonymous program of recovery. The Intergroup also organizes retreats, marathons, and other special activities to increase fellowship and recovery with other compulsive eaters. In addition to its responsibilities to local meetings and members, JSIG also participates in OA governance at the regional and national levels.

The Jersey Shore Intergroup welcomes your participation, feedback and questions. If you have questions about OA in general or about the Intergroup, please see ‘About JSIG’ for contact numbers.
