Anorexics and Bulimics Anonymous
Anorexics and Bulimics Anonymous (ABA) is a fellowship of individuals whose primary purpose is to find and maintain sobriety in eating practices, and to help others gain sobriety. Rather than about food, ABA considers eating disorders to be about an illusion of control over food and body weight. They believe sobriety is about surrendering that illusion of control to a Higher Power of one’s own individual understanding. There are no dues or fees for ABA membership. ABA is not affiliated with any other 12-step fellowship or outside organization, nor are they allied with any religion.
Overeaters Anonymous (OA) offers a program of recovery from compulsive overeating, binge eating and other eating disorders.
OA is not just about weight loss, weight gain, maintenance, obesity or diets. It addresses physical, emotional and spiritual well-being. It is not a religious organization and does not promote any particular diet. There are no dues or fees for members. OA has about 6,500 registered meetings in over 75 countries.
