“In my experience, a common belief keeping many people from recovery is that without the eating disorder they would find themselves out of control, both physically and emotionally. This fear is crippling and has them either running away from food or towards it for relief. Ironically, the very act of surrendering and giving up the fight becomes their saving grace, providing them with the ultimate empowerment. And within the surrender comes a connection many of them have longed for and needed.”
EATING DISORDERS ANONYMOUS (EDA)
EDA is a Twelve-Step fellowship of individuals who share their experience, strength and hope with each other that they may solve their common problems and help others to recover from their eating disorders. People can and do fully recover from having an eating disorder. The only requirement for membership is a desire to recover from an eating disorder.
