Lexington (Kentucky) SAA is a fellowship of men and women recovering from sexual addiction by following the Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions of Sex Addicts Anonymous (SAA). Lexington SAA is an autonomous, registered group of the International Service Organization of Sex Addicts Anonymous, Inc.
Lexington SAA, as a fellowship of recovering sex addicts, extends to all who suffer from sexual addiction the message that you are not alone; There is hope of recovering from this addiction, and finding peace in your lives.
Here is a brief statement found on the homepage of the ISO of SAA, Inc., which we feel expresses very well what we in the Lexington SAA fellowship have found to be true in our lives:
Through long and painful experience, we came to realize that we were powerless over our sexual thoughts and behaviors and that our preoccupation with sex was causing progressively severe adverse consequences for us, our families, and our friends. Despite many failed promises to ourselves and attempts to change, we discovered that we were unable to stop our addictive sexual behaviors by ourselves.
Many of us came to this realization when we started attending SAA meetings. In that setting we heard stories similar to ours and realized that recovery from our problem was possible. We learned through the SAA Fellowship that we were not hopelessly defective.
The basic principles of recovery practiced by SAA are found in the Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions of Alcoholics Anonymous. Although we are not affiliated with AA or with any other organization or agency, we are, indeed, grateful for permission to modify and apply the AA Steps and Traditions to sex addiction, making recovery possible for us.
