What is Sexaholics Anonymous?


Sexaholics Anonymous is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strength, and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover.

The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop lusting and become sexually sober. There are no dues or fees for SA membership; we are self-supporting through our own contributions.

SA is not allied with any sect, denomination, politics, organization, or institution; does not wish to engage in any controversy; neither endorses nor opposes any causes.

Our primary purpose is to stay sexually sober and help others to achieve sexual sobriety.

The Nuts and Bolts of Group Recovery


The Twelve Traditions used by SA are adapted with permission of Alcoholics Anonymous World Services, Inc. ("AAWS"). The Traditions help to facilitate a safe environment that maximizes the benefits of fellowship while minimizing distractions as we recover in community.

Permission to adapt and reprint the Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions does not mean that AAWS has approved the contents, of this publication, nor that AAWS agrees with the views expressed herein. AA is a program of recovery from alcoholism only. Use of the Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions in connection with programs which are patterned after AA, but which address other problems, or in any other non- AA context, does not imply otherwise.

Nontheless, we have found that the tried and true methods of AA have served us well in Sexaholics Anonymous. The SA program is based on the principles of AA, and practiced in a way to facilitate recovery from our addiction. Please feel free to view the Twelve Traditions of SA below.
