All SA regular meetings in the Southern California area are "closed meetings." That is, they are open only to those who want to stop their own personal sexually self-destructive thinking and behavior. Keeping meetings closed (open to Sexaholics only) helps protect members so they can feel free to focus on recovery in a safe environment.
We ask that prospective members attend a face to face regular meeting where they can conduct a newcomer meeting before participating in phone meetings. Newcomer meetings are where the Sexaholics Anonymous program is explained in detail and the prospective member can decide if SA is the appropriate program for him or her. Newcomer Meetings are available at all of our regular meetings. When you arrive please ask to see the secretary or other member of the meeting and tell them you are a newcomer and need a newcomer meeting.
Non-Sexaholics interested in observing an SA meeting are welcome only at Information meetings. Information meetings are open to everyone and we would be happy to explain our program to you and answer any questions you may have about SA. All information meetings are listed at the front of our directory. Only meetings listed in the Information meeting section will accept non-Sexaholics. You will not be able to attend an actual meeting because all regular meetings are closed for the safety of the participants. If you want to attend an open 12-Step meeting then you are advised instead to attend an "open meeting" of another 12-Step fellowship, such as Alcoholics Anonymous, which has both open and closed meetings.
ALL in-person Meetings have been cancelled until further notice.
Please utilize the phone meeting list by clicking on the link on the bottom of this page for meetings to attend during quarantine.
Many meetings are creating their own virtual meetings on the Zoom App or other platforms during this time. Contact someone in your meeting to find out if your meeting is doing this. You can also contact our email or call the SA phone listed here for a list of these meetings.
