SSA Overview

If you struggle with unwanted same-sex attraction (SSA), it is important to first realize that you are no different than any other person that Hashem challenges and that many men and women have indeed found a positive way to overcome this struggle!

Addicts who also struggle with SSA can greatly benefit from the tools on GYE, just as all other addicts. But it is important to understand that not everyone who has SSA is an addict.

We’ve found that some people with SSA are able to develop healthy opposite gender attraction, while some don't succeed. Either way, there is help available and you do not need to deal with it alone and in isolation.

On GYE you can join our free 45-minute weekly SSA phone calls and visit the SSA GYE forum.

We’ve put together a variety of SSA resources for you on the right side of this page, and you are invited to peruse the articles below.
