Eating Disorders Anonymous
A peer-support network, Eating Disorders Anonymous (EDA) follows a twelve-step program for eating disorder recovery. At meetings, people read from the EDA “Big Book”—which sets forth a structure for healing following the style and tradition of Alcoholics Anonymous—and focus on identifying and celebrating milestones. Because of the unique role of rule-setting and rigidity in eating disorder pathology, EDA focuses on balance rather than abstinence. The program holds in-person meetings across the US and in several other countries, and they are all free to attend. For those unable to go in person, there are daily online meetings.
