Probably the best way to understand SAA is to attend one our local meetings. Meetings are meant for those who think their lives may be affected by sex addiction, not for the merely curious or disrespectful. You are not required to speak or identify as an addict; you may simply sit and listen if you wish. We generally introduce ourselves at meetings by using first names only. For more details on how SAA meetings are run, and about the recovery process itself, see the SAA Group Guide, The Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions, and other Resources for Recovery.
