Hubby went to therapy yesterday and therapist told him to seek a sex addiction group, said go online and find something. What a task. He's overwhelmed, tired and I FEEL SHE DUMPED HIM without a life jacket in an ocean of sharks to be honest.

I was searching and got pulled into crap online that I didn't want to see so how is that suppose to be good for him? I'm having a real hard time finding something to be honest and Men only is another story. Help, help, help y'all. Thanks!

Dangal,

Unfortunately, I don't have any answers...

...Only a question...

Did Your hubby hire the therapist or did the therapists hire your hubby?

(I know where I would be looking for answers).

Here are some links sister Jen

I will share that I am a grateful recovering member of SA, and Jim's link to sanorthwest is one of the best going.

There are a few Sex Addiction 12-step groups and they have different temperaments :-)

http://www.sa.org

http://saa-recovery.org/

as the partner of someone who has been directed to an "S" fellowship take a look at s-anon, you may find something for your self there.

http://www.sanon.org

another is cosa

http://www.cosa-recovery.org/

With love and hope in my heart.

take what works for you and leave the rest... (lean into the pain/discomfort IMHO)

Wes

There's also SLAA (sex and LOVE addicts anonymous). I guess the love part is like people addicted to relationships but not necessarily sex.

dangal....if you are connected with a place of faith, there may be resources there for you to look at. The ones listed above are great. Sometimes if they don't know, they may be able to refer you to someone who can. I know here in Seattle there is a group called Exodus International. Its for men struggling with homosexuality, but they may be able to shed some light on your path...hope this helps.

Jen, There are several 12 Step programs for sex addiction in the Seattle area. Call the Alcoholics Anonymous number for Seattle. I know they have a meeting at their hall.

Good luck to you and continue to be strong for each other.
