Dear SAA Members and Groups:

Dear SAA Members and Groups,

Sex addiction is a pandemic of suffering. At the ISO office, we experience this pain first-hand when we answer calls like these from newcomers.

  • One man had been arrested at home in front of his family – his wife and children traumatized and devastated.
  • A distraught mother called about her son who had been expelled from college – his full scholarship lost.
  • The acting out behaviors of a man in a high-profile position were made public – his career and reputation in shambles.

While there were long-established meetings within minutes of their homes, none of these individuals had ever heard of SAA until their lives came crashing down. 

This reality highlights the urgent need to reach ever greater numbers of suffering sex addicts before more lives are ruined.

The ISO is working hard to address this need by providing an expanding array of services to help groups carry the message of recovery via:

Informational mailings to professionalsOnline notices/ads
Presentations to non-SAA organizationsOffice visits with professionals
Print notices/ads in local newspapersTraining on how to carry the message

Success! These services helped SAA groups complete a record thirty-nine projects in 2019 that reached thousands of people. (2020 & 2021 projects were limited due to pandemic.)

The ISO is committed to helping groups do even more projects in 2022 and beyond.

With your help, we can expand our fellowship’s ability to reach ever greater numbers of people.

Additional ISO services are listed below entitled 30 Essential ISO Services
