The Connecticut Intergroup is proud to co-sponsor with COSLAA a day of recovery. This conference, a blend from two recovery traditions, that of the addict and that of the co-addicted spouse, friend or family member who has been affected by the actions of addicts, meet to recovery jointly.
We meet at the United Methodist Church, Old Rock Hill Road Wallingford, CT. The site is rural with room for meditation in a memorial garden.
Please save the date on your calendar. As we approach the meeting time, more details will appear here.
This is the 18th year of Augustine Alchemy, a conference for Sex and Love Addicts and COSLAA, a program for those affected by the addiction to Sex and Love. The program is OPEN TO ALL WHO MAY NEED IT. We consider it ‘Alchemy’ because of the healing properties and ‘Augustine’ because we in S.L.A.A. are also known as the Augustine Fellowship.
This event is not open to press nor media but only for those who think they may have or may be affected by this addiction.
The 2016 Augustine Alchemy Conference is jointly sponsored by the Connecticut Intergroup of S.L.A.A. and Connecticut COSLAA. Funds raised are returned to respective intergroups. We do have a silent auction. Consider bringing a basket or item(s) representative of your area or your group
The conference is held at the First United Methodist Church in Wallingford, Saturday August 12th 2017. It is a day of recovery and growth for addicts and those affected by the addicted family member or friend.
The morning session begins with a group wide gathering, a speaker from S.L.A.A. followed by a speaker from COSLAA.
Several topic break-out sessions follow the speakers. Topic meetings follow similar structures as in regular meetings. A chair is designated for each meeting.
The rules for these meetings are similar to regular meetings. Please follow topic guidelines – no crosstalk no feedback. Crosstalk involves correcting a speaker and feedback telling them what to do.
The first COSLAA break-out is reserved for non-addicts. A newcomer meeting is scheduled for one of the first SLAA sessions

We close with a circle, group gratitude and the serenity prayer.
