What is S-Anon?
S-Anon is a program of recovery for those who have been affected by someone else's sexual
behavior. S-Anon is based on the Twelve Steps and the Twelve Traditions of Alcoholics Anonymous.
or compulsion can take many forms: sexual affairs with men or women, sex with children in or outside of the family, sex with
prostitutes or other strangers, emotional affairs, compulsive sexual fantasy, compulsive masturbation, addiction to pornography
or internet sex sites and chat rooms, telephone sex, exhibitionism, voyeurism, and more.
In S-Anon, women and men
meet to share their experience, strength and hope, so they may help solve their common problems and help others to recover
from the effects of having lived with or living with a sexaholic.
S-Anon is not allied with any sect, denomination,
politics, organization or institution; it does not wish to engage in any controversy; nor does it endorse or oppose any causes.
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 do this by applying the Twelve Steps of S-Anon to our lives and by welcoming and giving comfort
to families of sexaholics.
