The Food Addiction Institute is an educational institution. Our priority is to reach out to healthcare and allied health providers who serve patients or clients who are or may be addicted to (dependent on) one or more foods or to volume eating.

  • We provide up to date information about initial screening, diagnosis and treatment.
  • We also provide information to those afflicted with food addiction (substance dependency).
  • We refer them to sources of information, support and appropriate professional assistance.
