SLAA 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 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:


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


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


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


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

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


        As a fellowship SLAA has no opinion on outside issues and seeks no controversy. SLAA 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 that renders any personal differences of sexual or gender orientation irrelevant.
