S-Anon International Family Groups

Carrying the Message

S-Anon and S-Ateen International Family Groups' primary purpose is to help the friends and family members of sexaholics. Many who could benefit from our programs of recovery still do not know of their existence. Outreach service helps to communicate the message of S-Anon/S-Ateen to the general public by reaching out to professionals, the media, and institutions. Our goals are to attract newcomers to our fellowship, and to increase awareness of our fellowship within the community.

The following resources are provided by the World Service Office (WSO) for use by groups in local outreach efforts.

S-Anon Public Information Poster
Use this color S-Anon public information poster to inform the public how and where to contact S-Anon.

Outreach Letter/Packet to Professionals
Personalize this outreach letter/packet with your area information and distribute it to professionals along with the suggested S-Anon pamphlets.

Outreach Letter to Area Newspapers

Additional suggestions for carrying the S-Anon message include:

  • Displaying literature at local professional conferences and being available to answer questions.
  • Offering S-Anon literature to public libraries or to professional practices with waiting rooms.
  • Offering literature and/or an S-Anon meeting to local correctional facilities.
  • Letter writing to S-Anon members who are incarcerated.
