Is S-Anon for You?
If you've been affected by the sexual activity of a family member or friend, you may find help and hope in S-Anon. The S-Anon Checklist may help you determine if this Twelve Step program may benefit you.
What Is S-Anon?
The S-Anon Family Groups are a fellowship of people from all walks of life, including all sexual orientations, genders, denominations, and races, those in a relationship or not, parents, children, relatives, friends, and others who have been impacted by someone else's sexual behavior. We come together to share our experience, strength and hope in order to solve our common problems. Our program of recovery is adapted from Alcoholics Anonymous (AA), as reflected in the S-Anon Twelve Steps and the Twelve Traditions. There are no dues or fees for S-Anon membership; we are self-supporting through our own contributions. Our primary purpose is to recover from the effects upon us of another person's sexaholism and to help the families and friends of sexaholics. We highly recommend checking out one of our meetings.
