Sexaholics Anonymous (SA) is an unincorporated association of individuals and groups offering a Twelve Step recovery program to people who are addicted to lust, sex, dependency relationships and various forms of self-destructive sexual thinking and behaviour.
Sexaholics Anonymous is a relatively new Twelve Step fellowship. SA received permission from Alcoholics Anonymous to use its Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions in 1979. The first regular Sexaholics Anonymous meeting was started in 1981 in the USA. By 1997 there were 1200 SA groups in twelve countries around the world. There are now active Sexaholics Anonymous fellowships in 59 countries worldwide.
