If you struggle with food, you are not alone. Find resources available to help you conquer disordered eating, including overeating, undereating, and compensatory weight loss behaviors.

Overeaters Anonymous and Eating Disorders Anonymous

Overeaters Anonymous (OA) offers a community of support to those struggling with compulsive overeating, undereating, food addiction, anorexia, bulimia, binge eating, or overexercising.

 

OA is not about weight loss, weight gain, or maintenance. This twelve-step program offers physical, emotional, and spiritual recovery for those who suffer from disordered eating, and body image issues, and reminds you that you are not alone.

However, OA does take an abstinence approach to "problem foods" which some find reinforces the restriction and deprivation mentality unconsciously imposed by diet culture. For a different take on this, there's Eating Disorders Anonymous (EDA).

 

EDA also offers a community of support to those struggling with food and body image issues. EDA claims that balance - not abstinence - is their goal and they aim to help others live without obsessing about food, weight, and body image. EDA is a strength-based and solution-focused 12-step program that rejects weight management techniques and rigidity around food.

Find an Overeaters Anonymous meeting or Eating Disorders Anonymous meeting near you. You never have to register for a meeting in order to attend.

The National Eating Disorders Association (NEDA) understands that eating disorders are serious illnesses and not lifestyle choices. They support individuals and families affected by eating disorders and serve as a catalyst for prevention, healing, and access to quality care.

NEDA offers confidential assistance at their toll-free helpline:

1-800-931-2237

Helpline Hours:

  • Monday - Thursday: 9a-9p EST 

  • Friday: 9a-5p EST 

You can explore additional support resources at their online resource directory and they can provide referrals if you are engaging in high-risk eating disorder patterns such as purging, restricting, and other compensatory weight loss behaviors.
