Event description

Description

Food Addicts in Recovery Anonymous (FA) is a program based on the Twelve Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous (AA). We offer help and recovery to those whose connection with food can be understood as a form of addiction. We charge no dues or fees and our meetings include no weigh-ins. Our membership is international and includes women and men of all ages. All are welcome.

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 meetings in and around SF at foodaddicts.org including:

Monday 7-8:30pm

CPMC/St. Luke’s, Griffin Room

3555 Cesar Chavez St. in SF


Friday 7:30-9am

St. Patrick Church, McKenna Room

756 Mission St. in SF


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.
