Service Resources

“Any form of service—no matter how small—that helps reach a fellow sufferer adds to the quality of our own recovery.”

The Tools of Recovery, p. 5

Service Structure

OA Member Resources

The OA Service Structure is an upside down pyramid. The most important people are on the top – the OA members and groups. It is important to remember to deal with issues at the level they are occurring and then move DOWN the pyramid.

A Step Ahead

A Step Ahead is OA’s quarterly newsletter for members, groups, and service bodies. Back issues, as well as the current one, are available and can be printed to give out at meetings.


A great source of information is available on the Documents page.  A smaller number of Documents,  selected for usefulness to members in recovery is available here.


Look through the FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) for answers on many topics.
