About Us

Sex & Love Addicts Anonymous (SLAA) is a fellowship of men and women based on the 12 Step program of Alcoholics Anonymous. This self-help fellowship is open to people of any age or sexual orientation. Members include both those who suffer from a compulsive need for sex, and those with a desperate attachment to one person. What all members have in common is an obsessive/compulsive pattern, either sexual or emotional (or both), in which relationships or activities have become increasingly destructive to all areas of their lives - career, family, and sense of self-respect.

The only requirements for SLAA membership are a desire to stop living out a pattern of sex and love addiction and a willingness to respect the anonymity of our members. SLAA is supported entirely through contributions of its membership, and is free to all who need it.

If you believe that you may indeed be a sex and/or love addict, you may wish to answer the 40 Questions for Self Diagnosis compiled by Fellowship Wide Services of SLAA. These questions are designed to be used as guidelines to identifying possible signposts of sex and love addiction. They are not intended to provide a sure-fire method of diagnosis, nor can negative answers to these questions provide assurance that the illness is not present.

Additionally we also identify with some or all of the 12 characteristics.
