GATEWAY TO RECOVERY!
GATEWAY TO RECOVERY
St. Louis, Missouri is known as the “Gateway to the West” as it was from this city that many settlers and adventurers launched into a challenging yet exciting future filled with abundant opportunities for betterment and freedom in the American West.
Similarly, we, the men and women of the St. Louis chapter of Sexaholics Anonymous, have found the 12-step program and fellowship of Sexaholics Anonymous to be the Gateway to Freedom from the cruel tyrant of sexaholism and lust addiction and an entry into the abundant and fruitful land we call Recovery.
Each of us has been afflicted by a profound and utter powerlessness over one or more sexual behaviors that threatened to destroy our sense of worth, our relationships, our careers, and for some of us, even our very lives. The disease of sexaholism is manifested in a variety of ways among our members. One has summarized it this way:
We became true addicts: sex with self, promiscuity, adultery, dependency relationships, and more fantasy. We got it through the eyes; we bought it, we sold it, we traded it, we gave it away.
But we have discovered a solution to our powerlessness and to our destructive choices! If you too have despaired of ever being free, we would love to share with you our experience, strength, and hope. Freedom and a supportive fellowship are within your reach. Come join us!
