Sex Addicts Anonymous – Austin Recovery Page

Is Sex Addicts Anonymous Right For You?

SAA-Austin is an spiritual recovery program for people who struggle with compulsive sexual behavior. Behaviors which cause pain for ourselves, our loved ones, and those around us.

If you are unsure whether you may be a sex addict we suggest that you complete the self-assessment appearing in the Newcomers area of our website. Whether you experience porn addiction, sexual compulsion or any other sexual behaviors that may cause your life to become unmanageable, you may find this assessment valuable.

“Before coming to Sex Addicts Anonymous, many of us never knew that our problem had a name. All we knew was that we couldn’t control our sexual behavior. For us, sex was a consuming way of life. Although the details of our stories were different, our problem was the same. We were addicted to sexual behaviors that we returned to over and over, despite the consequences.”
