Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What is Sex and Love Addicts Anonymous?
A: Sex and Love Addicts Anonymous is an anonymous, Twelve Step, fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strength and hope in that we may solve our common problem and help others to recover. The S.L.A.A. recovery program and fellowship are based on the model pioneered by Alcoholics Anonymous.
Q: What is the cost for joining?
A: There is no cost to join or attend meetings. Our meetings and our national and local service organizations are self supporting through our own contributions.
Q: Do I have to be a member to attend?
A: No. However, some meetings are designated as "closed" which means that only persons with a desire to stop a destructive pattern of sexual behavior may attend.
Q: How do I get started?
A: It is suggested that you start by attending meetings on a regular basis and by reading S.L.A.A. literature. Try to stay for the entire meeting and allow the group to welcome you.
