DISCLAIMER: Affinity groups at the center reserve the right to prioritize the needs of the group that they and we have identified as underserved. It stands to reason that someone might mistakenly walk into an affinity space they do not identify with - without knowledge of the affinity affiliation. The Center cannot possibly prevent any occurrence of this unfortunate instance happening - even with great promotion - we cannot control the possibility of the occasional word of mouth misperception. We therefore have agreed as a community to respect the boundaries set by these affinity collective care circles and ask that anyone finding themselves in an instance of mistakenly entering an affinity circle that they do not identify with to please exit without taxing the collective or its facilitators to be traumatized by having to explain or defend the right to healthy boundaries set by the group.

(Virtual) Sex Addicts Anonymous (SAA)

Needs a location

Sex Addicts Anonymous (SAA) is a fellowship of people who share their experience, strength and hope with each other so they may overcome their sexual addiction and help others recover from sexual addiction or dependency. This meeting is open to anyone who identifies as LGBTQ and shares a desire to stop addictive sexual behavior. There is no other requirement. Our common goals are to become sexually healthy, and to help other sex addicts achieve freedom from compulsive sexual behavior. We are not affiliated with any other 12 step programs, nor are we part of any other organization. We do not support, endorse, or oppose outside causes or issues. We are supported through voluntary contributions from members. If you are new to SAA, we recommend reading What is Sex Addiction? and Am I a Sex Addict?
