The S-Anon Public Outreach Posters may be used to inform the public about how and where to contact us. You can order the posters from our Literature Store.
Where to Use These Posters
It is critical that when we post these notices, we first obtain permission to do so. Some possible posting locations are hospitals, police stations, schools and universities, churches or missionary outreach offices, government service offices, drug treatment centers, or other places where addicts, family members or friends seeking recovery or people who help addicts may be likely to see them.
S-Anon International Family Groups has a long history of cooperation with professionals who work with those affected by the sexual behavior of family members or friends. Doctors, nurses, counselors, therapists, social workers, clergy, attorneys, judicial, law enforcement, employee assistance plans and human resources personnel are just a few of the professions that find their clients can benefit from S-Anon.
How to Use These Posters
We need to stress that it is a good policy to remember our Traditions state “attraction rather than promotion” as an important concept when doing public information work such as this. Good judgment should be used when creating and posting these notices. We need to refrain from provocative, promotional statements or artwork that may convey a negative image of the S-Anon/S-Ateen program or may appear to be promotional. Even how and where we post notices should be evaluated before we follow through on the project. This is why a poster with a simple message explaining that we are available and how to contact us is the desired approach.
