S.L.A.A. Preamble ©1986 S.L.A.A.
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 S.L.A.A. membership is a desire to stop living out a pattern of sex and love addiction. S.L.A.A. 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 / Meetings. Our capacity to reach out for the supportive fellowship within S.L.A.A.
- Steps. Our practice of the Twelve Step program of recovery to achieve sexual and emotional sobriety.
- Service. Our giving back to the S.L.A.A. 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.
As a fellowship, S.L.A.A. has no opinion on outside issues, and seeks no controversy. S.L.A.A. is not affiliated with any other organizations, movements or causes, either religious or secular.
We are, however, united in a common focus: dealing with our addictive sexual and emotional behavior.
We find a common denominator in our obsessive / compulsive patterns which renders any personal differences of sexual or gender orientation irrelevant.
We need protect with special care the anonymity of every S.L.A.A. member. Additionally, we try to avoid drawing undue attention to S.L.A.A. as a whole from the public media.
Our group does not speak for all of S.L.A.A. This web site is not affiliated with S.L.A.A. Fellowship Wide Services, or any other SLAA group. As a group, we are autonomous.
We do not maintain local meeting information. Our group meets using computers in a real-time environment. If you would like local meeting information for your country, state or province, please contact S.L.A.A. Fellowship Wide Services directly at their website http://www.slaafws.org or by email to email@example.com for further assistance.
We are not affiliated with other groups either. The #SLAA Online Group and this web material are not associated with any organization or group of people. SLAA is strict about refusing to associate itself with anyone or anything. That refusal is a good thing, and we agree with it. Nothing you see here (such as text, book excerpts, banners, icons, avatars, links, etc.) should indicate any kind of associations or relationships. As an organization, S.L.A.A. takes no position on outside issues.
Sex and Love Addicts Anonymous neither endorses nor recommends other organizations; any such references are only to provide individuals with the opportunity to learn about other Twelve Step, Twelve Tradition recovery groups dealing with addiction (especially to sex, love and relationships). The Twelve Steps and the Twelve Traditions are reprinted and adapted with permission of Alcoholics Anonymous World Services, Inc. Permission to reprint and adapt the Twelve Steps does not mean that AA is affiliated with this program. AA is a program of recovery from alcoholism only, use of the Twelve Steps and the Twelve Traditions in connection with programs and activities which are patterned after AA, but which address other problems, does not imply otherwise.
