This site provides links to sites offering secular and faith-based recovery for sex offenders, especially people who have committed child sexual abuse. Some of these resources are also directed toward adults who are attracted to minors but who are not sex offenders.
Sex Offender Recovery Links is part of the Philia sites, which provide news and resources to religious support groups for adults who are attracted to minors. The sites offer interfaith and secular material that will be of interest to all minor-attracted adults and to other people seeking information about pedophilia and pederasty. To learn more, please see our home page.
