Conference Service Manual

This Conference Service Manual (CSM) was created in 1995-1996 from the materials and experiences of members who had participated in S.L.A.A. service since the first Annual Business Meeting (ABM) in 1982.

The By-Laws of S.L.A.A.

The specific and primary purpose of this Corporation is to be of service, through a Twelve Step program of recovery, to those persons who identify themselves as sex and love addicts.

Policies and Guidelines

S.L.A.A. and Social Media

Since the emergence of social media as a powerful communication tool, many S.L.A.A. Groups and Intergroups are considering creating a presence using these platforms. F.W.S. has chosen not to have an official presence on any form of Social Media, including Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, MySpace, Linkedin, and Google+ at this time.

Anonymity, the Law, and S.L.A.A.

Anonymity is the foundation of our program... However even this basic principle may give way to the pressure of individual consciences or legal requirements... Speaking of any potentially illegal activity, especially relating to minors, endangers the speaker and lays a burden of knowledge on others that they may not be willing to assume.
