Becoming a Member
The best way to become a member is to attend a meeting and listen with an open-mind before deciding whether or not you belong. The decision is up to the individual and the only real requirement for membership is a desire to stop compulsive sexual behaviors. SAA is open to all sex addicts regardless of one's sexual orientation or gender. Our site exists to provide information about the SAA fellowship here in the Las Vegas Metropolitan Area for all sex addicts. If you believe you may be suffering from sex addiction or compulsive sexual behavior, you have come to the right place. This site provides information and resources in support of your recovery. Sex addiction is not a hopeless condition. Many sex addicts achieve lasting recovery with the help of this program.
What to Expect from an SAA Meeting
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.
SAA meetings are run by members. There are no professional or outside facilitators. We meet as equals: sex addicts helping one another to achieve sexual sobriety and to practice a new way of life. We all contribute to making our meetings places that foster our recovery and carry the SAA message to the sex addict who still suffers. Our fellow members depend upon us, as we depend on them.
Because of the sensitive nature of sexual addiction, our groups are "closed," meaning that only those with a desire to stop compulsive sexual behavior may attend. While we all strive for sexual sobriety, achieving it is not a requirement for attendance or participation. All participation is voluntary. We are not required to speak if we don't want to. Just by listening we can learn how other members become honest, confront their addiction, find support from fellow addicts, and practice the program. We can learn how others have faced problems that are similar to ours, and how they have used the tools of the program to deal with them. Members can have any religious belief, or no belief at all. All sex addicts seeking recovery are welcome.
