Welcome to Sex & Love Addicts Anonymous, Los Angeles!
Our members have found ways out of the pain and confusion caused by sex and love addiction by participating in the S.L.A.A. Twelve-Step program modeled after Alcoholics Anonymous. There is a solution - you are not alone!
What is Sex and Love Addiction?
We in S.L.A.A. believe that sex and love addiction is a progressive illness which cannot be cured but can be arrested. It can take many forms, including a compulsive need for sex; an extreme dependency or obsession with another person (or many); sexual or romantic activity outside the scope of a monogamous relationship; obsessive fantasy, whether sexual or romantic; a compulsive attraction to unavailable or abusive partners; compulsively engaging in anonymous or casual sex; or a compulsive avoidance of physical intimacy, social contact or emotional attachment. When an obsessive/ compulsive pattern exists, it can become increasingly destructive to career, family and one's sense of self esteem and self respect. Sex and love addiction, if left unchecked, always gets worse.

Sex and Love Addicts Anonymous, or S.L.A.A.
S.L.A.A. is open to anyone who believes they have a problem with sex addiction, love addiction, romantic obsession, codependent relationships, fantasy addiction and/or sexual, social and emotional "anorexia". We use the Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions adapted from Alcoholics Anonymous to recover from these compulsions and break free. By following a simple program which has proven successful for scores of other men and women with the same illness, we can recover. We reconstruct our lives physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.
