S-Anon International Family Groups

What is S-Ateen?

S-Ateen is a fellowship of young people who share their experience, strength and hope with each other so that they may solve their common problems and help others to recover. The only requirement for membership is that there be a problem of sexaholism in a relative or friend.

There are no dues or fees for S-Ateen membership; we are self-supporting through our own contributions.  We do not discuss religion in our meetings or become involved as a group with any outside organization.  Our primary purpose is to recover from the effects upon us of another person's sexaholism and to help families and friends of sexaholics.

We believe sexaholism is a family disease because it affects all the members of the family emotionally, spiritually, and sometimes physically.  We cannot change or control our parents, family members, or friends.  We can detach from their problems while continuing to love them and ourselves.  By applying the Twelve Steps to ourselves, we begin to grow mentally, emotionally, and spiritually.
