What is S-Anon?

S-Anon Step ProgramS-Anon is a 12-Step program designed to help those who are affected by  someone else’s sexual behavior.  While these programs are non-denominational, their principles are very similar to those of the LDS faith. It is important to note that there are a number of other non-LDS groups for sexual addiction. An advantage of SA in particular is that their definition of sexual sobriety is consistent with LDS beliefs: “No form of sex with one’s self or with partners other than the spouse.” Some of the other groups do not necessarily promote the same standards of chastity, but instead encourage members to create their own definition of “sobriety.” As LDS members look for appropriate 12-Step groups, they should make sure that the group’s definition of sobriety matches their belief system. Many members of the LDS faith have found SA and S-Anon to be especially effective in helping to achieve recovery.
