A program of recovery for those who want to stop their sexually self-destructive thinking and behavior.


Welcome to the home page of the Southern California Area of Sexaholics Anonymous. Here you will find locations for information meetings in Los Angeles, Orange & Santa Barbara Counties. Before joining a group, prospective members are asked to first attend an Information Meeting.

To help you decide if you have a problem with lust and sexually self-destructive behavior, you may wish to read selected items from our literature.

You may also obtain information on how to purchase literature at the Southern California Area site.

Meetings surrounding the Southern California area:

At their request, links to the Fresno and Inland Empire-Coachella Valley websites have been added to our site. We invite you to visit them and find a meeting if you are working in or visiting those areas and can't attend a local SoCal meeting.

What is Sexaholics Anonymous?

Sexaholics Anonymous is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strength, and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover.

The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop lusting and become sexually sober. There are no dues or fees for SA membership; we are self-supporting through our own contributions.

SA is not allied with any sect, denomination, politics, organization, or institution; does not wish to engage in any controversy; neither endorses nor opposes any causes.

Our primary purpose is to stay sexually sober and help others to achieve sexual sobriety.*

Sexaholics Anonymous is a recovery program based on the principles of Alcoholics Anonymous and received permission from AA to use its Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions in 1979.
