Share Article

S.A. Lifeline Foundation, a non-profit organization committed to fighting pornography addiction through education and recovery support has just released a new resource manual. This manual explains the neuro-characteristics of sexual addiction, provides teaching materials aimed at prevention, and offers support and resource information for recovery.

Our message is one of hope... honestly seek recovery and you will find it

In an effort to provide hope and encouragement, the S.A. (Sexual Addiction) Lifeline Foundation has released a comprehensive and informative manual for parents, families and spouses, as well as religious, civic, educational and business leaders about pornography addiction. The S.A. Lifeline’s website, salifeline.org, has recently been updated to reflect the recent publication of this educational manual. The manual, Understanding Pornography and Sexual Addiction, is available for purchase in book form for $19.95, or available as a free download in PDF format: http://salifeline.org/understanding_pornography_free_download/

It is their hope that this manual will provide important resources and dialogue for all those affected by pornography and sexual addiction.

Pornography is often described as a “victimless” addiction, but studies show that its impact on individuals, marriages, families and society is devastating and far reaching. It is estimated that 70% of men ages 18-34 view online pornography within a typical month[1]. Some surveys show that 9 out of 10 men report using pornography and one-third of women report accessing pornography[2]. 47% of Families in the United States report that pornography is a problem in their home[3]. Some studies indicate that 55% of divorces are related to pornography[4].

“Our message is one of hope... honestly seek recovery and you will find it”
—Steven & Rhyll Croshaw, Founders of SA Lifeline Foundation

The S.A. Lifeline Foundation is committed to providing education, resource information and support to all those who are impacted by sexual addictions and pornography. They firmly believe in sexual addiction recovery, and wherever possible provide meeting space for 12 Step Groups and education programs relating to sexual addiction. Although the S.A. Lifeline Foundation is not affiliated with, nor endorsed by any religion or any organization, including the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, it is the hope of the S.A. Lifeline Foundation that their new manual, Understanding Pornography and Sexual Addiction, will have a positive impact on how members of the LDS church handle or deal with the issue of pornography and sexual addiction.

Elder M. Russell Ballard, a leader in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has said:

“As our children grow, they need information taught by parents more directly and plainly about what is and is not appropriate. […] let this come from parents in the home in an appropriate way.”

The purpose of the new manual, Understanding Pornography and Sexual Addiction, is to provide these important resources, and to provide information on teaching prevention and recovery. This well-organized manual includes FAQs, articles, lesson plans, dialogue examples, resources for recovery and support, answers to over 70 questions from qualified professionals on the topic of Pornography and seven powerful, personal stories of recovery.

The S.A. Lifeline Foundation is a not-for-profit organization that is resolute in its effort to fight pornography through education about addiction and support for recovery. (http://salifeline.org/about/officers-and-board-members/)

We are also available via email support (info(at)salifeline(dot)org) to answer any other questions regarding pornography addiction that you might have.”
