“We share our experience with each other, which reminds us that we have a common illness and that we are not alone. By sharing our stories, we remind ourselves of our progress in recovery, and we give each other hope.”
— Sex Addicts Anonymous, p. 12
The Outer Circle
The SAA newsletter, The Outer Circle, is published bi-monthly by the International Service Organization (ISO) of SAA. It is available without cost by download from this website or by request in writing to .
The newsletter contains original articles and poetry about sex addiction written by members of the Fellowship. It also presents news of ISO and regional activities, and other information of interest to members of the Fellowship.
Approximately 1,500 copies of the newsletter are printed and mailed each issue. We also send out by email over 8,000 copies of the newsletter. The Outer Circle is a vital way to share the message of recovery to all SAA members, including prisoners and others who don’t have access to the Internet.
SAA meetings are encouraged to share the newsletter and display it alongside other SAA literature. A group can sign up for a printed copy or print out the online version.
