There are a variety of 12-step support groups for recovery. 12-step meetings are not facilitated by a therapist; they’re self-run. Support groups are not a substitute for treatment, but can play a crucial role in recovery.
The following list, while not comprehensive, will link you to both well-known and less-familiar 12-step (and similar) organizations and support groups for recovery.

For Families and Others Affected by Addiction and Mental Illness
codependents of sexual addiction – COSA (for those whose lives have been affected by another’s compulsive sexual behavior)
