Group Name: Obsessive Compulsive Anonymous (OCA)
Description: Obsessive Compulsive Anonymous (OCA) Is a fellowship of people who share their Experience, Strength, and Hope with each other that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from OCD. The only requirement for membership is a desire to recover from OCD. There are no dues or fees, and they are self-supporting through our own contributions. OCA is not allied with any sect, denomination, politics, organization or institution, does not wish to engage in any controversy, neither endorses nor opposes any causes. Our primary purpose is to recover from OCD and to help others. We choose to remain anonymous at the public level for several good reasons.
Anonymity allows them to share our personal stories, knowing that they will remain in the confidence of those who attend our meetings. Anonymity also reinforces that it is the program not the individual, that is responsible for the recovery. They have found that together we can get well when separately we could not. The twelve steps, as originated by Alcoholics Anonymous, and adapted for OCA, can bring relief to the common dilemma. Most have found that using this program can reduce or eliminate obsessions and compulsions. Donations are welcomed.
