The S-Anon/S-Ateen Service Manual has recently been updated with clarifying language regarding how groups are registered. To guard against the dilution of the S-Anon program, the S-Anon Board of Trustees has developed language specifying the use of S-Anon Conference Approved Literature during meetings:
To guard against the dilution of the S-Anon program (Tradition Four), the group will use S-Anon published literature as the primary recovery tool. S-Anon literature is written by S-Anon members, addresses the S-Anon “program” as experience by the group conscience of S-Anon members, and addresses the S-Anon “solution” as experienced by S-Anon members using the S-Anon Steps, Traditions, and Concepts of Service. We also ask that other S-Anon Conference Approved Literature be used in meetings only as a compliment to S-Anon published literature.
