Sex Addicts Anonymous

Sex Addicts Anonymous is a Twelve Step program, adapted from the original Twelve Step program, Alcoholics Anonymous.

The only requirement for membership of Sex Addicts Anonymous is a desire to stop addictive sexual behavior. There are no fees or dues.

Are your sexual behaviours making you unhappy?

Are you repeatedly drawn the sexual activities or thoughts that are becoming increasingly destructive to family, friends, career and/or your sense of self-respect?

Sex addicts act out sexually in many different ways. However, there are common elements that seem to characterize sexual addiction:

  • Powerlessness over addictive sexual behavior.
  • Resulting unmanageability of his/her life.
  • Feelings of shame, pain, and self-loathing.
  • Failed promises and attempts to stop acting out.
  • Preoccupation with sex leading to ritual.
  • Progressive worsening of negative consequences.

If you are unsure whether you may be a sex addict, we suggest that you complete SAA'a self-assessment.
