Sex addicts Anonymous (SAA) is a 12 step recovery program built upon the principles of Alcoholics Anaonymous.

Our program offers recovery to men and women through a process of honesty, fellowship, and self-discovery. SAA offers fellowship to all those who wish to stop addictive sexual behaviors that threaten our lives and our freedom.

You are not alone.
Together, we can be free.
One day at a time.

Are you an Addict?

“Before coming to Sex Addicts Anonymous, many of us never knew that our problem had a name. All we knew was that we couldn't control our sexual behavior. For us, sex was a consuming way of life. Although the details of our stories were different, our problem was the same. We were addicted to sexual behaviors that we returned to over and over, despite the consequences.”
(Sex Addicts Anonymous, 2nd ed., p. 3)

For the woman addict

There is help for women who have a sex addiction. We suggest coming to at least six local meetings or telemeetings within a short period of time before deciding whether SAA is right for you. Be gentle with yourself, and give yourself time to listen to others’ stories and absorb the introductory literature. If you are like us, you did not get to where you are now overnight. It will also take time to become oriented to this program and a new way of thinking and living in recovery.

All meetings guarantee confidentiality and anonymity.
