Meetings

A note about the meaning of “closed” in regards to our meetings: Closed does not mean closed to anyone seeking recovery. Closed JUST means closed to anyone NOT struggling with this addiction. Spouses, teachers, students, therapists….ect who are not struggling with this addiction are NOT to attend any meetings that say “closed”. To those who are struggling with this addiction, or those who suspect they may have a problem, our meetings are OPEN!


ALL Meetings at a Kaiser are closed, starting March 16th! In fact, they have all been closed until further notice 5/27/20.

For all of you who may not know at this point some of the Face to Face meetings have moved to a online presence using Zoom.
Zoom has updated their client with a better encryption.
For a more secure Zoom Client you can download it here.
To join a Zoom meeting after May 30 you will need the new client.
For more info on this email webadmin@ocisaa.org

    • Hi David,

      Unfortunately we do not have meetings in Spanish at this time. We are looking for someone to start one, however!

      Ron R.

  1. Hello,
    I’d like to attend a meeting, is it a walk-in or do I need a reservation? Also what does “closed” mean, is it closed to new members? Thanks. J.

    • Hello Justin,

      Our meetings are all walk in, no reservation necessary. Closed only means closed to those who do not have sexual compulsions. I urge you to start attending one or more of our meetings a week.

      Ron Digicom volunteer

  2. Hi, I am 18 years old and a college student at Vanguard University. I have been addicted to porn for several years now and would like to find a group I can share this with and have fellowship with. I am looking at maybe joining the Friday 12-1 PM group in Costa Mesa. Would I be okay to join this group despite being somewhat young? Thank you and God bless.

    • Hi Daniel,

      You are very welcome to attend any of our meetings. As long as you are 18 and older, you are good. I urge you to start attending meetings as soon as you can. The earlier you work on this, the better off you should be.

      Ron Digicom volunteer

    • Hello Kaye,
      I apologize for the late reply. Currently we do not have women only meetings. We did for several years, but, meeting starters moved out of the area. We are looking for a woman to start a woman only meeting, let me know if you are interested.
      You can still attend one of our “mixed” meetings which are safe to attend. The do have women that attend.
      Ron

    • Hello Jimmy,

      Go to the top of our site and click on meetings. You’ll see we have over 30 meetings weekly. I strongly urge you to attend face to face meetings as much as you can and visit tele-meetings when you cannot attend a face to face.

      You can go to SAA’s national site for tele-meetings. https://saa-recovery.org/meetings/

      Ron R

  3. Hi
    I’m nervous about this. I see a lot of men only. The mixed are few and far between it seems? I would love to start attending meetings is there any mixed by the beach?

    • Hello Megan,

      If you go to the top of our site and click on meetings, that will bring up all of our over 30 weekly meetings. Look for any that say mixed. Unfortunately at this time we do not have all women meetings.

      There is another fellowship that does have more women called SLAA. If you google SLAA Orange County, you’ll see the site, They for sure have all women meetings. Let us know if you have any other questions.
