The US has a number of outlets for anorexics who are still in recovery and need help. In addition to the numerous online organizations and sites, there are also sites with blogs regarding the subject. However, there are national support groups that can help people suffering from this condition.

There is the National Eating Disorders Association (NEDA), then there is the National Association of Anorexia Nervosa and Associated Disorders (ANAD) (this is an online directory), and there is the Eating Order Anonymous and Anorexics and Bulimics Anonymous.

These national organizations usually work in conjunction with a 12-step program that helps the person transition into normal eating habits and behaviors. These programs are not a replacement for therapy, are usually run by people who have suffered from the condition, usually free, and associated with religious groups.

Those in recovery only need to look online or get referrals from the medical professionals who treated them to find out information related to the support groups in the area.

Yes, of course. There are hundreds and thousands of support groups for anorexia patients all over the U.S. To know the nearest one to your current location, I would suggest asking your psychiatrist because he is guaranteed to know about a support group close to you. If you don’t have a psychiatrist I would suggest you to get one because therapy is the only feasible way to deal with anorexia.

If there is no anorexia support group near your location, you can always call the National Eating Disorders Association Helpline for therapeutic help. Their number is 1-800-931-2237. The helpline is available from 9 am to 9 pm from Monday to Thursday and from 9 am to 5 pm on Fridays. You can also message them as NEDA to 741741.
