Web Site Policy

The purpose of this web site is:

  • To serve the fellowship of Sexaholics Anonymous.
  • To serve as a resource for S.A. members in a timely fashion.
  • To provide accurate and consistent information about Sexaholics Anonymous Phone Meetings.Make a Donation
  • To provide information about services and activities provided by the S.A. Central Office.
  • To encourage participation of S.A. members, groups and committees in S.A. services and activities.
  • To be self-supporting, declining outside contributions. To that end, we offer an ecommerce alternative using secure "Paypal" instead of physically passing the basket at teleconference meetings.

 

Committee

We are developing a —NEW— Automatic time zone recognition Schedule => Pilot Site The eCom committee is working tirelessly to bring you some advanced features, including interactive “time zones” to bring you the very best online experience.

Our committee is made up of a group of people who take on the responsibility of managing this website. We meet regularly to make decisions about the direction of the SAPhoneMeeting website and have a mixture of skills to be able to meet his/her responsibilities. By getting involved we want to give something back to SA and support a good cause.

 

Background

Click here to see entire globeConnecting SA members 365 days/year via teleconference all over the globe

Attend a live Sexaholics Anonymous teleconference meeting with others around the world who are seeking sobriety. SA began in 1979. The phone meetings began in 2004.

This website originated on April 13, 2009 out of mere desperation from a fellow SA member who believed in carrying the message, to help himself stay sober. Our singleness of purpose is to aid in providing timely and accurate information to the newcomer, as well as existing members of Sexaholics Anonymous. "I am responsible. When anyone, anywhere, reaches out for help, I want the hand of S.A. always to be there. And for that: I am responsible."

The phone meetings have experienced tremendous growth and structure improvements. Below are some of the highlights:

  1. Popularity of the Internet
    Averaging 6,000 hits/month in 2009 and over 30,000 hits/month in 2010
    More Info: Statistics | New Mtg Survey | Census
  2. On 11/1/11, it was decided that we switch to a more reliable vendor because the phone lines were very unpredictable. The primary access phone line was busy many times or went down all together. Thus, people were unable to connect for a meeting and it was very confusing. Flyer Eventually, we will be offering additional features which allow the call organizer to mute all the lines, which continues to be the #1 challenge. Hopefully, we will no longer need a backup number.

Misc

  • Ever wonder how a group phone call should be run? Fortunately, our SA Phone Meetings have matured tremendously over the years and there has been significant improvement with the professionalism and manner in which these teleconference calls are managed. Click here
  • Daily Sobriety Renewal is not the same as a conventional meeting. We read a series of questions together. We please ask all callers to limit their shares, so everyone has an opportunity to answer the list of questions. Our real goal is to hear the question and say yes in our hearts, and respond with one or two sentences.
  • Follow the normal guidelines of regular meetings. Phone meetings are Not intended to replace face-to-face meetings. Please attend local meetings, get a sponsor, and work the steps! You can find many local face-to-face meetings on our Links page or visit SA.org.
  • There should always be a facilitator and/or someone to help secretary the teleconference. If you login early and hear music, please be patient until others join. If necessary, you may be asked to help lead the call and take down a list of names in an orderly fashion. If you are new to the "phone bridge", we recommend listening to others share to get an idea of the style.
  • There are many calling plans available that offer competitive long-distance rates. We recommend Skype using VOIP. Another feature that has made these phone meetings very affordable is using the "Friends & Family" feature through Verizon which allows for unlimited minutes.
