SAA Meetings are held at locations through out the greater Austin area (Interactive Map). Most Austin area SAA meetings are closed to the general public. In support of SAA’s singleness of purpose, attendance at closed meetings is limited to persons who have a desire to stop compulsive sexual behavior. If you think you have a problem with compulsive sexual behavior, you are welcome to attend any of our meetings.
Open meetings, for those who do not identify themselves as having destructive and compulsive sexual behaviors, may be attended by anyone who is curious about what we have to offer (though there may be other restrictions, such as men only). Open meetings may also be available through other SAA fellowships, or through Telemeetings (see next paragraph).
If you are unable to attend a local meeting for any reason, the ISO of SAA lists dozens of telemeetings that take place throughout the day and night. Follow this link for a list of Telemeetings.
“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.”
— Sex Addicts Anonymous, p. 10
Most Austin SAA meetings are mixed, meaning that both men and women may attend. However, some meetings are limited to men-only or women-only. Check the meeting list web page (also available in PDF) to see if a meeting is mixed, men-only, or women-only. All Austin SAA meetings are open to LGBT members of the community.
