For the Health Care Professional


Help for Patients Struggling with Food Issues

You may have patients who have not been able to follow advice about healthier lifestyle choices. Many of us have been those patients--confounded, discouraged and even ashamed. We found a solution--and corresponding health benefits--in Food Addicts in Recovery Anonymous.

What is FA?

Food Addicts in Recovery Anonymous (FA) is a program of recovery based on the Twelve Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous. Some members have been obese; others have been severely underweight, bulimic, or so obsessed with food or weight that normal life was difficult or impossible. The common denominator uniting members of FA is addiction and a relationship with food that parallels an alcoholic’s relationship with alcohol.

The FA program offers the hope of long-term recovery, evidenced by many members who have continuously maintained normal weight and healthy eating for over thirty years.
