“Our fellowship is open to women and men, regardless of age, race, religion, ethnic background, marital status, or occupation. We welcome members of any sexual identity or orientation, whether they are gay, lesbian, straight, bisexual, or transgender.”
Sex Addicts Anonymous, p. 1-2
The only requirement for SAA membership is a desire to stop addictive sexual behavior.SAA Tradition Three
SAA Women and Diversity
The SAA Women’s Intergroup supports all members who identify as women in unity. As the fellowship grows and matures, including more diversity, the Intergroup has the vision and mission to support SAA women in new ways. Please let us know if there is a way we can increase our support for your needs.
An SAA meeting consists of two or more individuals who, using the Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions of SAA, share their experience, strength, and hope on recovery from sex addiction. We are equals: one sex addict helping another. We all contribute to making our meetings places that foster our recovery.
“As a fellowship, Sex Addicts Anonymous is open to anyone with a desire to stop addictive sexual behavior. Some groups, however, have made the autonomous decision to gear their meetings toward a specific group within the fellowship. For example, there are meetings for men, women, gays and lesbians, sexual anorexics, professionals, and those who have committed felonious behaviors. Such meetings are meant to allow those of us who attend them to speak more freely, to give us the opportunity to meet with others who may understand us better, or to better protect our anonymity. These kinds of meetings have proven to be valuable. Our experience suggests, however, that we gain much by also attending meetings that are as open and diverse as possible.”Sex Addicts Anonymous Page 82 (Tradition Three)
