Sex Addicts Anonymous*

What is SAA?

head in hands. shame.

Sex Addicts Anonymous, SAA, is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strength and hope with each other so they may overcome their sexual addiction and help others recover from sexual addiction or sexual dependency.

There are no dues or fees for membership.

The only requirement for membership is desire to stop sexual acting out in ways that may be risky to physical health and emotional well being, illegal, painful, costly, jeopardize relationships or employment, or bring shame, guilt, and dishonesty into our lives.

For more information on SAA, we suggest you read the pamphlet entitled "Pathway to Recovery" available for online reading on the website of the International Service Organization of SAA.

Conference information


However we do service, we receive much more than we give. First and foremost our experience has shown that working with others safeguards our own abstinence. We keep the priceless gift of our own sexual sobriety by being of service to other sex addicts. We receive many other gifts as well. We break out of the isolation and self-centeredness of our addiction. We grow as we practice generosity, empathy, and humility. We forge new bonds with others that nourish and sustain us. We experience the joy and satisfaction of giving something of ourselves to a larger cause. - Step 12. SAA Basic Text
