Event description

Description

Food Addicts in Recovery Anonymous (FA) is a Twelve Step program of recovery for anyone who suffers from overeating, under eating, bulimia, or obsession with food, weight or body size. There are no dues or fees, and meetings are open to anyone who wants to stop eating addictively.

Who might benefit from FA?
People who find help in FA vary greatly. Some of us have been diagnosed as morbidly obese while others are undereaters. Among us are those who were severely bulimic, who have harmed themselves with compulsive exercise, or whose quality of life was impaired by constant obsession with food or weight. We tend to be people who, in the long-term, have failed at every solution we tried, including therapy, support groups, diets, fasting, exercise, and in-patient treatment programs.

Find weekly meetings in and around Amherst:

Wednesday 6:45-8:15 pm - Jewish Community of Amherst

Sunday 4-5:30 pm - Newman Center @ UMass Amherst

Friday 10-11:30 am - Wesley United Methodist Church, Hadley

Does FA work?
Some of our members have been in continuous recovery (maintaining a stable, healthy weight and enjoying freedom from obsession with food, weight, bingeing, or bulimia) for over twenty-five years. Members with five to ten years of recovery are increasingly common.

Would you like more information?
We encourage you to attend several meetings to gain an understanding of what the program offers, and visit the FA website at foodaddicts.org to check status of above meetings
