S-Anon International Family Groups
Every six months (January and July) S-Anon holds a three-day convention, traditionally in conjunction with Sexaholics Anonymous. The location is different for each gathering, and S-Anon members from the United States, Canada and all over the world attend to share their experience, strength, and hope. These conventions are a wonderful opportunity to experience the strength and unity of S-Anon as an International Fellowship. Conventions are open only to those affected by sexaholism.
During conventions, a special effort is made to help newcomers (those who have been in the program less than three months) feel welcome. There are always newcomers at conventions. Some may be attending their first S-Anon meetings the weekend of the convention. Special meetings and one-on-one sessions with temporary sponsors are available to ask questions. Other types of meetings held during the convention usually include:
Some areas may hold periodic workshops or weekend gatherings. These are a great place to meet other S-Anons who may have new and helpful perspectives, and offer a great boost for the recovery of any S-Anon member. S-Anon retreats, workshops or weekend gatherings are open only to those affected by sexaholism. For information on events in your area, contact the World Service Office.
