You Are Not Alone In Your Struggle
 ** Due to community centre closures by the City of Ottawa, in light of the ongoing prevention for the spread of the coronavirus COVID-19, all meetings have been cancelled until further notice. Some are being evaluated on a weekly basis. Those in community centres (Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Sunday) are presently suspended until April 6, 2020.
As a temporary measure, some groups have established virtual meetings. For information on when these meetings are being held and how to connect, please contact us via our phone line at 613-786-1060 or via email at You may also use either of these to reach out to us for support.

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.

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. 

Here is a list of the current active SAA meetings:



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. 

We practice strict anonymity and confidentiality, so that our meetings are a safe and secure place for all of us. Whom we meet or what is said in a meeting is considered as confidential.
