While there are online meetings, some suggest that they have no local meetings to attend. SLAA Fellowship Wide Services provides help in creating new groups.
Tradition 3 states, “The only requirement for S.L.A.A. membership is the desire to stop living out a pattern of sex and love addiction. Any two or more persons gathered together for mutual aid in recovering from sex and love addiction may call themselves an S.L.A.A. group, provided that as a group they have no other affiliation.”
No matter how new you feel that you are in recovery, you are most welcome to create a group.
How do I start a group?
- Sometimes you may not know of others.
- Find a safe place to meet
- Often starting a group requires you break your anonymity.
- Churchs, synagogues and other religious institutions are good places to start
- Give the Pastor, Priest, Rabbi or Cleric information from Fellowship Wide Services
- Explain that you are a 12 Step Group organizing for recovery from Sex and Love Addiction.
- Announce your group through your local intergroup
- Even if you are the only one at the meetings, stay there. The power is in you to gather others.
- Read the big book
- Read the Steps and Traditions
Where can I get materials?
- Materials are available from Fellowship Wide Services
- Formats for meetings are available from other local groups and from your intergroup.
