THIS SITE LISTS AWOLS IN WHICH ALL MEMBERS ARE WELCOME.

As our fellowship’s book, Food Addicts in Recovery Anonymous, states in its preface, “FA has no position or opinion on medical, religious, or any other non-FA matters, including the use or discontinuance of prescription medications."

IN GENERAL, THE AWOLS LISTED ON THIS SITE ADHERE TO THESE COMMITMENTS AS BEST PRACTICES, AT A MINIMUM:

  • Abstinence is defined as weighed and measured meals with nothing in between — no flour, no sugar and the avoidance of all individual binge foods. 

  • In addition, specific drugs and substances not allowed for the duration of this AWOL include: caffeine, nicotine, alcohol, marijuana, and all medication taken with the intent to alter the mood in the moment or provide situational relief from the symptoms of addiction. 

  • Taking prescribed medications out of necessity to address physical or mental conditions is between fellows and their healthcare providers. In adherence with this statement — which captures the spirit of Tradition Ten — we take no position on this outside issue.

  • You are required to have a sponsor who is an abstinent FA member. 

  • AWOLs are intended to last at least one year (though size of group and other unforeseen circumstances may impact duration).

  • Individual meetings last an hour and a half.
