The SLAA (Shortened) Preamble

Sex and Love Addicts Anonymous is a Twelve Step, Twelve Tradition oriented fellowship based on the model pioneered by Alcoholics Anonymous.

The only qualification for SLAA membership is a desire to stop living out a pattern of sex and love addiction. SLAA is supported entirely through the contributions of its membership and is free to all who need it.

To counter the destructive consequences of sex and love addiction, we draw on five major resources:

Sobriety. Our willingness to stop acting out in our own personal bottom-line addictive behavior on a daily basis.

Sponsorship and Meetings. Our capacity to reach out for the supportive fellowship within SLAA

Steps. Our practice of the Twelve Step program of recovery to achieve sexual and emotional sobriety.

Service. Our giving back to the SLAA community what we continue to freely receive.

Spirituality. Our developing a relationship with a Power greater than ourselves which can guide and sustain us in recovery.
