Our fellowship is a society of men and women on the path of recovery. The fact is that we need each other to stay sober. The people we see at meetings are a lifeline for us. They understand in ways few people outside SAA do. Fellowship with people in the program helps to temper the isolation that we experience in our addiction. Remember, talking to someone after a meeting may be as helpful for him or her as it is for you.
After some meetings many go out for coffee or a meal. New members are especially welcome and encouraged to attend. Individuals or meetings sometimes put on events such as picnics, hiking, volleyball, or other activities that provide us with healthy ways of relating to each other. Anyone is encouraged to initiate a gathering and invite others to join.
