Sexual Recovery Anonymous
Sexual Recovery Anonymous (SRA) is one of several twelve-step programs for the treatment of sexual addiction based on the original Twelve Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous. SRA takes its place among various 12-step groups that seek recovery from sexual addiction: Sex Addicts Anonymous, Sex and Love Addicts Anonymous, Sexual Compulsives Anonymous and Sexaholics Anonymous. The New York-based group has meetings in several states. Collectively these groups are referred to as "S" groups since all their acronyms begin with that letter.
SRA was founded around 1993 and is said to be a "progressive offshoot" of Sexaholics Anonymous (SA) and is said to be "far more diverse" with a strong presence of women, African Americans, Asians, and members of the LGBT community. SRA also differs from SA by allowing sexual relations between two people in a “committed relationship”, while SA only allows a heterosexual spouse as an acceptable partner.
