If someone you love suffers because of food, there is help.
If you are reading this, you may have a family member or friend finding recovery in Food Addicts in Recovery Anonymous (FA). Or, perhaps, someone you care about is suffering as a result of their relationship to food and you wonder if FA can help.
Food Addicts in Recovery Anonymous (FA) is based on the Twelve Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous (AA). Unlike diet programs which rely on willpower and effort, FA addresses addiction and recovery is rooted in surrender. As a result, members find lasting freedom from cravings and maintain healthy weights for years and even decades.
FA members have found that we are addicted not only to foods made with flour and sugar, but to quantities of food as well. Many of us have been obese while others were underweight. Some of us maintained a healthy weight, but struggled constantly with obsession about our bodies. Without a program of recovery, we are unable to consistently make healthy choices about what we eat, regardless of the incredible willpower often evident in other areas of our lives.
For a basic understanding of food addiction and the program of Food Addicts in Recovery Anonymous (FA), and to read the experience of other family members with loved ones in FA, read the pamphlet To our Families and Friends. Here is a sample from that pamphlet:
We want to reassure you that although the beginnings may be difficult, in our experience, the result of the FA program can be a greater love and understanding of each other than was ever possible in the past. After a time, we thoroughly adjust to our new way of living.
We participate in life fully and zestfully, enjoying birthday parties, meals out, holiday celebrations, vacations, and other special times with our family and friends. We come to value our families and loved ones more than ever before, and they tell us that they like the people we have become. If someone you love has just joined FA, we believe that there will be many wonderful times ahead for both of you!

Substance use disorders are common among people with serious mental illnesses and put people at risk for many other problems. Many people with psychiatric symptoms choose to self-medicate to alleviate their pain and can develop addiction to drugs and alcohol. If both substance use and mental health illness co-occur, judgement is impaired and individuals are more vulnerable to unpredictable outcomes.

Rise Inspire Academy provides a safe, supportive recovery and academic environment that places high school students on a trajectory toward a life of purpose and value.
Family members of students at RIA will also have access to peer groups and counseling. This "community of recovery" model includes the instructional staff as well, who will be equipped with strategies and tools to ensure a total recovery experience for our scholars.
Students commonly relapse when they re-enter the same environment that doesn't support their recovery. As an experienced nonprofit, we also understand why young people struggle with substance-use disorder. Rise Inspire Academy directly addresses these challenges by bringing the common goals of substance use recovery and high school graduation to one place.
To achieve these outcomes, we have implemented our three-legged stool approach: Peer Groups, Engaging Academics, and Recovery Community. At the intersection of the three legs are our scholars who must first commit to taking a seat. This commitment to recovery launches their journey and is then strategically supported by each leg of the stool.

An addiction is a chronic disorder in which an individual is blinded by a substance, or engages in an activity, that gives them an immense amount of pleasure but has become detrimental to their everyday life. Compulsive behaviors and addictions can temporarily provide confidence, control, validation or other emotions lacking in one’s life, but the behavior may not stop until the root of the problem is addressed.
Addiction changes the brain through the limbic system, also known as the “brain reward system.” This part of the brain is responsible for producing feelings of pleasure and will manifest thoughts such as, “I deserve this,” or “Let’s do that again.” The abuse of addictive substances and behaviors triggers this system which can prolong a continuous cycle of destructive behavior.
Common addictions include but are not limited to:
- Drug or alcohol abuse
