“An SAA group consists of two or more individuals who, using the Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions of SAA, meet regularly for the purpose of recovering from their addictive sexual behavior. At our meetings, we read SAA literature and share our experience, strength and hope with each other, focusing on how the SAA program of recovery works in our lives.”
The International Service Organization (ISO) of SAA maintains a comprehensive list of active registered groups throughout the world and their meeting times.
Individual members do not need to register to attend a meeting. Registration is for those groups wishing to be listed with the ISO as an official SAA meeting. Only registered groups can participate as a group in ISO functions or events or have their meeting listed on the ISO meeting list.
The list serves two primary purposes:
At the discretion of each autonomous group, the information about their meetings is made available through this website to newcomers and to members of the fellowship who are traveling away from their home groups. Some groups permit publication of the location and times of individual meetings. Others provide a local contact person, through whom details about specific meetings may be obtained.
The registry of member groups also serves as the roster of groups who may send Group Service Representatives (GSRs) to their ISO area assembly meetings, where matters of interest to the fellowship and the ISO can be discussed. Area assemblies, in turn, elect delegates to represent their respective areas, and those delegates comprise the membership of the legal corporation, known as the ISO of SAA, Inc.
The printable registration form is available from:
The SAA Group Guide is designed to give the basic information and materials needed to start and nurture an SAA group. It includes suggested meeting formats and a selection of readings that may be used as deemed appropriate by an autonomous local group. It also contains general information about the SAA Fellowship, including services offered by the International Services Organization (ISO) of SAA and guidelines for participation in regional intergroups.
A updated version of the of the Group Guide was released for publication in May 2010.
