As the fellowship grows, we will look to start more meetings throughout the area. Ultimately, we would like to serve not only Reno, Sparks, Carson City, the Carson Valley, and Lake Tahoe, but also Dayton, Fernley, Fallon, Yerington, Truckee, and Susanville. Please contact us if you’re from one of those areas and would be interested in starting a meeting! We also welcome SA members who are visiting the Reno-Tahoe region.
At this time, Nevada SA meetings are open only to those desiring their own sexual sobriety. We do not allow family members or those in the media or academia to “observe” meetings. There is an open Friday night meeting in Sacramento that allows visitors.
A CAUTION TO NEWCOMERS (From Sexaholics Anonymous, “To The Newcomer,” pp. 3-4)
We suggest that newcomers to Sexaholics Anonymous not reveal their sexual past to a spouse or family member who does not already know of it, without careful consideration and a period of sexual sobriety, and even then, only after prior discussion with an SA sponsor or group.
Typically, when we come into the program, we want to share our excitement with those closest to us and tell all right away. Such disclosures might injure our family or others and should be confined to the group of which we are a part until a wise course is indicated. Of course, if there is any chance we have put others in danger, we take immediate steps to try to correct that.
Few things can so damage the possibility of healing in the family as a premature confession to spouse or family where sacred bonds and trust have been violated. Unwittingly, such confessions can be attempts on our part to dump our guilt, get back into good graces, or make just another show of willpower. Great caution is advised here.
Amends to family must begin with a sexually sober, changed attitude and behavior on a daily basis. Then, as we grow in recovery, we will find how to make direct amends. Help from sponsor and group is indispensable here. There’s always a way, if we really want to make things right.
