Adult Children of Alcoholics

Tradition program of people who grew up in dysfunctional homes. They meet to share their experiences of growing up in environments that included abuse, neglect and trauma. ACA provides a safe, nonjudgmental environment that allows people to grieve their childhoods and conduct an honest inventory of themselves and their family—so that they may identify and heal core trauma; experience freedom from shame and abandonment; and become their own loving parents.

Al-Anon/Alateen Family Groups

Alcoholism is a family disease. The Al-Anon Family Groups are a fellowship of relatives and friends of alcoholics who share their experience, strength, and hope in order to solve their common problems. Al-Anon has but one purpose: to help families of alcoholics. They do this by practicing the Twelve Steps, by welcoming and giving comfort to families of alcoholics, and by giving understanding and encouragement to the alcoholic.

Nar-Anon Family

Secular Organizations for Sobriety

Secular Organizations for Sobriety (SOS) is a nonprofit network of autonomous, non-professional local groups, dedicated solely to helping individuals achieve and maintain sobriety/abstinence from alcohol and drug addiction, food addiction and more.

Sex Addicts Anonymous

Our primary purpose is to stop our addictive sexual behavior and to help others recover from sexual addiction. Recovery was possible for most of us only when we accepted the fact that we were powerless over our addictive sexual behavior and that we were incapable of changing without help from outside ourselves. Many of us came to this realization when we started attending SAA meetings. In that setting we heard stories similar to ours and realized that recovery from our malady was possible. We learned through the SAA Fellowship that we were not hopelessly defective.

Sex and Love Addicts Anonymous

Sex and Love Addicts Anonymous, or S.L.A.A., is a program for anyone who suffers from an addictive compulsion to engage in or avoid sex, love, or emotional attachment. We use the Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions adapted from Alcoholics Anonymous to recover from these compulsions.
