Find a Meeting


“I am responsible. When anyone, anywhere, reaches out for help, I want the hand of SA always to be there. And for that: I am responsible.”

As a general principle, our SA meetings are only open to those who want to stop their sexually self destructive thinking and behavior. This is in line with our third tradition which states, ‘The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop lusting and become sexually sober.’

  • Newcomers are welcome at all meetings.
  • All meetings are mixed (men/women) unless otherwise noted
  • All meetings are closed meetings (open to sexaholics only to help protect the membership from the curious and insincere) unless otherwise noted
  • Many meetings have a dress code; until you learn otherwise, please do not wear shorts, tank tops, or other tight-fitting or revealing clothing that may trigger others.

In many cases, meetings are held in churches or other locations owned by a third party. However, according to SA Traditions, all groups are fully autonomous and are not allied with any denomination, religious group, or hold any other outside affiliation.

In keeping with our fourth tradition, ‘Each group should be autonomous except in matters affecting other groups or A.A. as a whole,’ we allow each SA group to decide whether or not to make their meeting location details public. Meetings that have chosen to be listed publicly are listed with a ‘PL’ after the meeting location; if you click on the meeting location the calendar will show you detailed information for that meeting

For all other meetings, we only give out the exact meeting locations to those seeking their own personal sexual sobriety. Please call (410)558-4510 (Baltimore Area) or (703)866-6929 (DC Area and Northern Virginia) and leave your name, number, and a time when you can be reached in person. An SA member will contact you discreetly to ask you some questions and direct you to a meeting. Or you may e-mail us at

  1. I want to start a meeting in Cumberland Md. Would appreciate any advice or materials needed to start a meeting here. I used to be active in SA and I need to return. Thank you Patrick N


  2. Patrick. I’ve been involved in the genesis of several meetings and would offer my help in setting up the meeting for Cumberland.
    Here are some thoughts for starters.
    Finding a place: Most churches are very receptive to making space available for a meetings. When you contact them. Say that you want to start a 12 step meeting that will meet weekly at a regular time. Explain that you have no resources for rent at the moment, but assure them that once the meeting gets going, that you’ll donate a fixed percentage of your 7th tradition.
    Setting a format. The easiest is to use the White Book suggested format in the back of the white book. As your first meeting in Cumberland, you can call it a Book Study meeting and read from the White Book and Step in Action series.
    Making your meeting known. Once you have the meeting place and time, we’ll list the meeting on the Baltimore Area Intergroup website. You should also plan on calling three or four of the Psychologist and Social Works in your community and make them aware of the new 12 step meeting.
    Literature. You should invest in a full set of SA literature. If you don’t have the funds, perhaps the intergroup can float you enough to get started.
