Who We Are

Sex and Love Addicts Anonymous is a Twelve Step,
Twelve Tradition-oriented fellowship based on the model pioneered by Alcoholics Anonymous.

The Twelve Steps of S.L.A.A

Step 1

We admitted we were powerless over sex and love addiction--that our lives had become unmanageable.

Step 2

Came to believe that a Power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity.

Step 3

Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God as we understood God.

Step 4

Made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves.

Step 5

Admitted to God, to ourselves, and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs.

Step 6

Were entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character.

Step 7

Humbly asked God to remove our shortcomings.

Step 8

Made a list of all persons we had harmed, and became willing to make amends to them all.

Step 9

Made direct amends to such people whenever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others.

Step 10

Continued to take personal inventory, and when we were wrong promptly admitted it.

Step 11

Sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with a Power greater than ourselves, praying only for knowledge of God's will for us and the power to carry that out.

Step 12

Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these steps, we tried to carry this message to sex and love addicts, and to practice these principles in all areas of our lives.

Who We Are

One of the resources we draw on is our willingness to stop acting out in our own personal bottom line addictive behavior on a daily basis. In addition, members reach out to others in the fellowship, practice the Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions of S.L.A.A. and seek a relationship with a higher power to counter the destructive consequences of one or more addictive behaviors related to sex addiction, love addiction, dependency on romantic attachments, emotional dependency, and sexual, social and emotional anorexia.

The Northeast Ohio Intergroup of S.L.A.A.

S.L.A.A has created and maintains this web site to carry the message of recovery to the sex and love addict who still suffers.
It does not speak for all of S.L.A.A., but reflects the experience, strength, and hope of our members.
