Sexaholics Anonymous San Diego

Statement of Principle

We have a solution. We don't claim it's for everybody, but for us, it works. If you identify with us and think you may share our problem, we'd like to share our solution with you (Sexaholics Anonymous, 2).

In defining sobriety, we do not speak for those outside Sexaholics Anonymous. We can only speak for ourselves. Thus, for the married sexaholic, sexual sobriety means having no form of sex with self or with persons other than the spouse. In SA's sobriety definition, the term "spouse" refers to one’s partner in a marriage between a man and a woman. For the unmarried sexaholic, sexual sobriety means freedom from sex of any kind. And for all of us, single and married alike, sexual sobriety also includes progressive victory over lust (Sexaholics Anonymous 191-192). Passed by the General Delegate Assembly February 2010.

The only requirement for SA membership is a desire to stop lusting and become sexually sober according to the SA sobriety definition. Any two or more sexaholics gathered together for SA sobriety according to the SA sobriety definition may call themselves an SA group. Meetings that do not adhere to and follow Sexaholics Anonymous' sobriety statement as set forth in the foregoing Statement of Principle adopted by the General Delegate Assembly in 2010 are not SA meetings and shall not call themselves SA meetings. Addendum to the Statement of Principle passed by the General Delegate Assembly on July 2016.

Meetings

The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop lusting and become sexually sober. This program is for men and women 18 years and older. Please be prepared to provide proof of age (ID). Newcomers must attend an orientation before attending a regular meeting. While this orientation may have been done at a different SA meeting location, some individual meetings may insist on doing their own orientation for people new to that meeting.

We want to make our meeting a comfortable and secure place for all sexaholics. For that reason, we try to be careful that our dress doesn't act as a trigger to others. Please be considerate of other SA members in choice of attire. If you are not certain what is appropriate, see a regular group member after the meeting.

S-Anon and S-Ateen San Diego

Hope and help for family and 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 Twelve Traditions of Alcoholics Anonymous. The primary purpose of S-Anon is to recover from the effects of another person's sexaholism, and to help families and friends of sexaholics.

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. For more information, click here.
