Bay Area SIA Meetings!

Survivors of Incest Anonymous is a twelve-step self-help recovery program for survivors of child sexual abuse. We define incest very broadly. There are no dues or fees. Survivors of Incest Anonymous provides support groups, literature, pen pals, bulletings, and speakers. For more information on SIA as a whole, check out the World Service Office and other information below.

All meetings are scent-free and wheelchair-accessible. Although you may want to double-check with the San Jose and San Francisco meetings about that.

Most meetings are also public transit-accessible, for example by the 57, N,12, 51, or 59 busses or the Kaiser shuttle from MacArthur BART (in Oakland). You can click above to find out how to get to your particular meeting via public transportation.

We are learning that we are not alone and we are not to blame for the abuse. Healing is possible. Welcome!
