The South Jersey Intergroup of Overeaters Anonymous supports the OA 12-step recovery program from compulsive overeating in southern New Jersey. Comprised of meetings from Burlington, Camden, Cumberland, Gloucester, Mercer and Monmouth counties, SJIG’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.
South Jersey Intergroup meets once a month, typically on the first or second Saturday, from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm at the Prince of Peace Lutheran Church on Route 70 in Marlton. 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. SJIG maintains a web site, a monthly newsletter (The Stepping Stone), a meeting directory and a telephone hotline. The group provides speakers and sponsors lists, and educates healthcare and other professionals about the Overeaters Anonymous program of recovery. The Intergroup also organizes retreats, marathons, social events and other special activities.
In addition to its responsibilities to local meetings and members, SJIG also participates in OA governance at the regional and national levels.
South Jersey Intergroup welcomes your participation, feedback and questions.
