Sample Meeting Script

This meeting script is provided to give you an idea about how a typical SAA check-in meeting is run, and to provide a substitute script if someone needs to chair a meeting but doesn’t have a script handy.  It is not considered definitive.  “Each group should be autonomous except in matters affecting other groups or SAA as a whole” (Tradition Four).

Help For Partners, Family & Friends

The concepts of 12-step recovery apply not only to addicts, but also to those that have suffered from a sex addict’s behavior. Groups such as COSA and S-Anon offer recovery to those who have been affected by someone else’s sexual behavior. SAA is not affiliated with COSA, S-Anon, or any other fellowship.
