Welcome to All Newcomers !
Why we help
You're looking for help, you think you may be a sex addict or sexually addicted, but you're afraid there isn't anyone out there who could possibly do what you've done, much less understand and accept you for who you are. Take a breath, and know that your first meeting will be an experience of acceptance and understanding. As you work up the courage and come through the door, you'll see the faces of men and women who know your troubles and understand sex addiction: they've all been there too. You will probably be asked by at least one person if this is your first meeting, and asked to introduce yourself to the group with just your first name.
The leader of the meeting may then explain to you how that meeting will introduce you to the 12 step program. Your first meeting will likely be an opportunity for you to listen to others' stories, learn how the program works for them, and ask questions, or share as much or as little as you're comfortable doing. You will NOT be required to do anything - you never will be. Participation in our groups, as with most 12 step programs, is voluntary. Your recovery is your own. Our role is to support each other as equals.
Meetings & Times
In order to protect the anonymity of all members of our groups, we do not reveal locations of our meetings until a newcomer has first contacted our HelpLine at 519-435-6486. This also allows for the Helpline responder to refer the caller to the group that best meets his/her needs. To find out more about what happens when you contact our Helpline, click here.
Our Helpline 519-435-6486 is available 24/7. When you call our Helpline you will be asked to to leave us a message with a telephone number to reach you at, the best time(s) of day to reach you at, and, your first-name (only). If it is helpful to you, you can leave additional information on how to contact you. We check our Helpline messages daily for any new messages, and one of the members of our groups will call you back.
