Each week the ISO office receives requests from prisoners seeking recovery from compulsive sexual behavior, asking for literature, sponsors, and correspondence with SAA program members. Typically these prisoners have been convicted of criminal sexual conduct, have little family support, and have very limited, if any, access to sexual recovery resources inside their institutions. Many prisoners who write to the ISO have found our address in a piece of literature or through another prisoner. SAA’s Prisoner Outreach Program carries the message of recovery to addicts inside prisons and similar institutions, primarily through correspondence between prisoners and SAA members.
WHY WE WRITE
We do prisoner outreach correspondence to give back what has been so freely given to us, and we find that doing service helps us to maintain our sexual sobriety and recovery.
For some of us, reaching out to prisoners may be a way to actually work our own Twelve Steps. For instance, since some of us have been imprisoned for what we have done as sex addicts and many of us might have been, we may write to a prisoner as a Ninth Step indirect amends to those we have harmed. Or we may see our prisoner correspondence as a way of bringing to the addict to who still suffers the message of recovery, as suggested by Step Twelve and Tradition Five.
