Become a Part of Portland SAA Intergroup
The Portland SAA Intergroup is looking to fill new service positions — and we want you! Intergroup is made up of representatives from our local meetings who gather monthly to do wider service. Intergroup supports all sex addicts in the Portland area through the Portland SAA Website (portlandsaa.org), events and outreach. Being part of Intergroup is a profound way to be of service!
For those in recovery we develop events and activities that build a healthy and vibrant recovery community. For those who have not yet found recovery, we reach out to counselors, agencies or other groups that may be in contact with still suffering addicts.
We currently meet at 11:30 a.m. on the 3rd Saturday of each month, at the First United Methodist Church of Portland (1838 SW Jefferson Street), in Room 204.
