What is FAA?
Food Addicts Anonymous (FAA) is an organization that believes food addiction is a biochemical disorder that occurs at a cellular level and therefore cannot be cured by willpower or by therapy alone. We feel that food addiction is not a moral or character issue.
This Twelve Step program believes that food addiction can be managed by abstaining from (eliminating) addictive foods, following a program of sound nutrition (a food plan), and working the Twelve Steps of the program. After we have gone through a process of withdrawal from addictive foods many of us have experienced miraculous life-style changes.
FAA is self-supporting through our own contributions. There are no dues or fees required for membership, but only a desire to stop eating addictive foods. We are not affiliated with any diet or weight loss programs, treatment facilities or religious organizations. We neither endorse nor oppose any causes. Our primary purpose is to stay abstinent and help other food addicts to achieve abstinence.
Is FAA for You?
If you are a person who has struggled for years to eat healthy foods and maintain a healthy weight, FAA may be the place for you.
If you are someone that binges by eating large quantities of sweets or starches, you may find that FAA offers a solution.
If you are person who purges their body by extreme measures such as vomiting, laxatives or excessive exercise, you are not alone and may find comfort and support in our fellowship.
If you have found yourself limiting your intake of foods and have people in your life telling you that you need to eat more, you may find value and hope in this program.
Welcome to FAA. FAA Can Help!
Tools of Recovery
If you have decided you might be a food addict, you will need some tools of recovery in order to begin to recover from food addiction.
Although we have specific tools, the real strength of the program lies in the members themselves. It is through our membership, with all its wisdom and strength, that recovery occurs. Please join us in our meetings.
Recovering together one day at a time from the biochemical disease of food addiction.
