Connecting 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 the winter 2002 when folks in Philly were snowed in and could not physically get to a meeting. 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. FAQs
Incidentally, when the Original Phone Meeting Flyer was first published it began on Yahoo SA Online. Then in 2010 the Virtual Intergroup (VIG) was established to help facilitate the schedule of meetings and moved the PDF document to www.denversa.org.
“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 in 2010 Statistics In 2013, we averaged over 50,000 hits per month.
Today the Internet is as common as a phone call. In fact, most people do both from same device. However, our culture is filled with sexual vices and the world wide web is no exception. Even though SAPhoneMeeting and other recovery websites related to sex addiction may only play a small role in addressing this epidemic, it’s definitely worth it.
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.
