Welcoming to women meetings

Meetings who want you to know they are “Welcoming to Women”

Most SAA meetings are “mixed,” meaning that they are open to all genders. All mixed meetings are welcoming to all genders, including, of course women. There are many more men in SAA than women, so meetings may not be used to women sex addicts. Despite their intention to welcome women they may seem unfriendly or discuss topics which a woman might find difficult. So, how does a woman find one that is welcoming?

The meetings listed on this page want you to know that they welcome women at their meetings.

The SAA Women’s Intergroup intends to list meetings that are approachable, welcoming, and safe – friendly to women. We want to hear from groups that support our Vision and Mission; for example, they may:

  • provide contact information for women,
  • have one or more women attending, or
  • offer a separate phone list for women members.

If this describes your mixed-gender, women-only, LGBTQ+, or open meeting, we encourage you to register as a Member Meeting with the SAA Women’s Intergroup at your business meeting. Register your Women-only or “Welcoming to Women” meeting with Women’s Intergroup. We list registered member meetings (below), and we send announcements for our Intergroup’s Business Meetings, where your members (of all genders) may attend and vote.

“To carry the message of recovery to the (woman) sex addict who still suffers and to support the (woman) sex addict who continues with her journey of recovery.”

SAA Women’s Intergroup Vision

“To produce, support, and financially assist women-only retreats, workshops, events, activities, and initiatives focused on sexual addiction recovery; to support the women’s outreach initiatives of other SAA groups; and to provide information, encouragement, and financial assistance for individual women to participate in these events.”

SAA Women’s Intergroup Mission Statement

Take what you like and leave the rest” is a common phrase helping us to focus on where the similarities are and leaving the differences.
All meetings have a structure and a format which is agreed by that particular group. SAA as a whole can’t be responsible for each meeting, which is why we suggest that newcomers try six meetings before deciding if SAA is for you. If you do not feel comfortable in a meeting you can just leave, but we recommend finding a different one, as you might get the message you want to hear.
