S-Anon International Family Groups

Hope & Help for Family & Friends of Sexaholics

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.  The primary purpose of S-Anon is to recover from the effects upon us of another person’s sexaholism, and to help families and friends of sexaholics.  Read more about S-Anon’s purpose.

For the Newcomer

Welcome to S-Anon!  Let us assure you that no matter what feelings you may be having right now, other members of S-Anon have felt similar emotions.  Meetings are a vital part of the S-Anon program, providing us with the opportunity to identify and confirm common problems and to hear the experience, strength and hope of others.  If this is your first contact with a Twelve-Step program, you may have some questions about meetings and how our group works.  Read more about S-Anon meetings.

Throughout the year S-Anon conventions are held at the area, state, regional, national, and international levels.  View a list of upcoming international conventions and other S-Anon events.

For the Teenager

S-Ateen is a Twelve Step program for teenagers who have been affected by the sexual behavior of a relative or friend.  The meetings follow S-Anon's Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions.  S-Ateen meetings are conducted separately from those of S-Anon, and are guided by adult S-Anon sponsors.  Read more about S-Ateen's purpose.
