Addictive Eaters Anonymous (AEA) is a worldwide Twelve Step fellowship based on Alcoholics Anonymous. AEA members have found recovery from binge eating, anorexia, bulimia, other forms of addictive eating and compulsive exercise. AEA is a design for living through which members find peace of mind and the ability to live a meaningful and productive life.
AEA is not a diet or weight loss organisation. AEA members follow a Twelve Step programme, based on that of Alcoholics Anonymous. Through working the Steps, members find a Higher Power and freedom from the obsession with food. Members share their experience with newcomers of how they have found sobriety. Sobriety in AEA is freedom from addictive eating and all mind-altering substances.
AEA is not affiliated with any other organisation. AEA meetings are open to anyone. There is no cost to attend.
Anyone with a desire to stop addictive eating can become an AEA member. Everyone is welcome in AEA, including family or friends of anyone who suffers from anorexia, bulimia, obesity, other forms of addictive eating and compulsive exercise. AEA also welcomes healthcare professionals and members of other Twelve Step recovery fellowships.
Wherever you are, whatever your problem with food, AEA can help.
