What is AABA of Philadelphia?

The American Anorexia and Bulimia Association is a non-profit organization that is supported by concerned members of the public and healthcare professions. AABA provides support, resources and advocacy for individuals with eating disorders and their loved ones.

 

Our mission is carried out through the following services:

  • Support: monthly clinician facilitated support groups for individuals with eating disorders and their loved ones.
  • Resources: resource database consisting of area support groups, treatment centers, therapists and nutritionists specializing in the field of eating disorders.
  • Advocacy: as NEDA network members, we work with area professionals to advocate on behalf of individuals who are in recovery from or diagnosed with an eating disorder.

Our philosophy is that eating disorders are bio/psycho/social problems that require multidisciplinary intervention. One of the organization's main functions is to provide a resource database consisting of support groups, treatment centers, therapists and nutritionists specializing in the field of eating disorders. AABA does not subscribe to any one particular type of treatment. Therefore, referrals from our organization are not recommendations. We believe that it is the individual's responsibility to properly screen all referrals in order to find the facility or therapist that most appropriately fits his or her personalized needs.
