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.
- 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.
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.
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:
- Popularity of the Internet
Averaging 6,000 hits/month in 2009 and over 30,000 hits/month

- 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.

- 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.
- 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.
"Every SA group ought to be fully self-supporting,
declining outside contributions."
