WHO ARE WE?
We are a fellowship of men and women from the surrounding Ottawa region who follow the Twelve Steps of Sex Addicts Anonymous® and share our experiences, strengths and hope with each other for the purpose of finding freedom from addictive sexual behavior and helping others recover from sex addiction.
WANT TO JOIN?
The only requirement for membership in SAA-Ottawa is the desire to stop addictive sexual behavior. This is the only requirement. There are no fees or dues. See the meetings tab, call or email us for more information.
Local meetings offer an accepting, non-threatening environment where we can share our common struggles and learn how to apply the principles of the Twelve Steps to our everyday lives. Local groups are self-supporting from voluntary contributions of their members.
WHAT IS SEX ADDICTION?
Sex addiction, or compulsive sexual behaviour, means different things to different folks. In terms of our program, it is any act or behaviour which the individual feels has become compulsive and unmanageable. There is no one definition that fits everyone. If you are wondering if it might apply to you, we recommend that you look at the International Service Organization’s self-assessment tool, which can be found here – https://saa-recovery.org/am-i-a-sex-addict/.
