Women’s Health Month

Happy May! Today I was thinking of the saying “April showers bring May flowers”. That saying doesn’t really fit for Florida weather (as there really hasn’t been any rain to speak of), which is where I am currently but it definitely fits for Vancouver’s weather. May is a time for new beginnings, the sun is… Continue Reading

It’s a terrible torment to be stuck in an endless cycle of gaining and losing weight. Starving and bingeing, followed by endless despair. We obsess about eating or not eating, with the same results.

Can’t Stop Eating?

Doctors, dieticians and therapists can’t always help people like us. Bariatric surgery is too risky, or something in your gut tells you that it’s just not going to work. Hundreds of pounds lost, but we gain them back again. Wouldn’t it be great to know at last what the problem really is? How do you know if you are a food addict?

We Can Help

ACORN Food Dependency Recovery Services is a professional organization committed to helping other food addicts. All our staff members are food addicts with long-term stable abstinence and recovery. We see ACORN work as a supplement to a fellowship group such as Overeaters Anonymous (OA), Food Addicts in Recovery Anonymous (FA) and other 12-step programs. ACORN holds Primary Intensives and Food Addiction Treatment Workshops in different parts of the US. Our services are for people in all stages of recovery from chemical dependency on food: just beginning, in relapse, and long-term recovery. Our workshop attendees include bulimics, anorexics, and food addicts.

Why ACORN?

We understand – both personally and professionally. Our expert staff includes food addicts who know first-hand what you are experiencing. Our food addiction recovery services are based on the 12-Steps as they appear in such programs as Overeaters Anonymous, Food Addicts Anonymous and CEA-HOW. Although we are not affiliated with those groups, we believe in the recovery they provide.

Food Addiction Treatment

We offer professionally-led food addiction recovery and support workshops. Our workshops offer structured support, explanations, and the opportunity to clear out the “food fog” without medications or invasive surgery.
