About Us

The Ab-Anon Family Groups are a fellowship of relatives and friends of anorexics and bulimics who share their experience, strength and hope in order to solve their common problems. We believe anorexia and bulimia are family illnesses, and that changed attitudes can aid recovery.

Ab-Anon is not allied with any sect, denomination, political entity, organization or institution; does not engage in any controversy, neither endorses nor opposes any cause. There are no dues for membership. Ab-Anon is self-supporting through its own voluntary contributions.

Ab-Anon has but one purpose: to help families of anorexics and bulimics. We do this by practicing the Twelve Steps, by welcoming and giving comfort to families of anorexics and bulimics, and by giving understanding and encouragement to the anorexic or bulimic.
