The Role of MDKIG

Miami-Dade and The Keys Intergroup (MDKIG)  is the service body of Overeaters Anonymous in the geographical region of Miami-Dade County and The Florida Keys. We are part of OA Region 8, also known as Soar 8, which is comprised of the U.S.A.’s southeast states (Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee) along with Puerto Rico, South America, Central America, and all of The Caribbean islands. We are one of ten areas in the world forms to served to regional needs of Overeaters Anonymous. In accordance with the traditions of OA, MDKIG does not govern. Instead, our leaders are “but trusted servants” who seek through a group conscience to serve the will of the OA groups in our area.
