Grace Fellowship, the Birmingham area intergroup of Sex Addicts Anonymous® (SAA), is composed of seven autonomous member groups, each of which is registered with the International Service Organization (ISO) of SAA.
SAA is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strength, and hope with each other in order to find freedom from addictive sexual behavior and to help others recover from sex addiction. The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop addictive sexual behavior and a willingness to try to follow this simple program.
The SAA program has been adapted from the Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions of Alcoholics Anonymous. Although we are not affiliated with AA or any other organization or agency, we are, indeed, grateful to AA for giving is hope that recovery from addiction is possible.
In our local meetings, we do not dwell on the specific details of our problem; instead, we share the experience, strength, and hope that we have received as a result of working the program. We believe that diligent and thorough application of the principles and methods suggested in the Twelve Steps of SAA will lead to a spiritual awakening that allows us to achieve recovery and to live free from the bondage of addiction to obsessive sexual thoughts and compulsive sexual behavior.
Each group of SAA is autonomous except in matters that affect other groups or SAA as a whole. We are self-supporting through voluntary contributions of our members. There are no fees or dues.
Guided by the Twelve Traditions of SAA, as a group, we do not support, endorse, oppose, or discuss outside issues or causes in our meetings. Likewise, we are not affiliated with any outside organization or institution, and our relationship to the facility where we meet is purely that of grateful tenant.
