WHAT IS COSA?
COSA is a recovery program for men and women whose lives have been affected by another person's compulsive sexual behavior. In COSA, we find hope whether or not there is a sexually addicted person currently in our lives. With the humble act of reaching out, we begin the process of recovery. We are not affiliated with outside organizations, including treatment centers, religions or therapy.
COSA is a Twelve Step recovery program for spiritual development, no matter what our religious beliefs. As we share our experience, strength and hope while working the twelve steps, we grow stronger in spirit. We begin to lead our lives more serenely and in deeper fulfillment, little by little, one day at a time. There is hope in COSA. In the long run, our efforts to control fail. The consequences leave us in despair: our self-esteem, personal boundaries and values are seriously compromised. Our health and our lives are at risk, and our identity is lost. We realize our need to reach out for help. COSA offers hope. In COSA, we begin to experience relief from our isolation, in the safety of an anonymous gathering with others who share our stories. With perseverance, bit by bit, sanity, clarity and our own truth begin to emerge.
