About Sex and Love Addicts Anonymous in China
(S.L.A.A. China Intergroup)
Welcome to the China Intergroup website for Sex and Love Addicts Anonymous.
SLAA is China is ACTIVE and we check this website and the associated email REGULARLY!
Sex and Love Addicts Anonymous or S.L.A.A., is a program of recovery from sex and/or love addiction (Links to SLAA's homepage). The program is based on the principles of the twelve steps and twelve traditions, a model pioneered by Alcoholics Anonymous (AA). The only requirement for anyone who wishes to join S.L.A.A. is a desire to stop living a pattern of sex and love addiction.
S.L.A.A. welcomes people of any age, sex or sexual preference to its meetings. Sex and love addiction may take several forms including but not limited to a compulsive need for sex or forms of sexual activity, an obsessive or extreme attachment to one or many persons whether emotionally or sexually, or a chronic preoccupation with romance, intrigue, or fantasy.
While sex and love addiction patterns can vary from individual to individual, what S.L.A.A. members have in common is the realization and/or actual suffering linked to consequences of an obsessive and/or compulsive pattern with sex and/or love. Sex addiction and love addiction, if left, always get worse.
The consequences affect many aspects of a member’s life including career, family, and sense of self-respect. Members realize that left without any help or willingness to recover, loss of job and income, diseases, divorce, humiliation, damage to self, family and friends are just some of the possible consequences. At S.L.A.A., we believe that if we follow a program which has proven successful for a great number of members around the world, we can get our life back on track and live a healthy, happy life.
S.L.A.A. groups in China provide a welcome to anyone that wishes to receive help breaking free from a pattern of sex and love addiction. Special care and protection of the anonymity of members is a fundamental principle of S.L.A.A.

Sex and Love Addicts Preamble
Sex and love addicts anonymous is a twelve step, twelve tradition-oriented fellowship based on the model pioneered by alcoholics anonymous. The only qualification for S.L.A.A. membership is a desire to stop living out a pattern of sex and love addiction. S.L.A.A. is supported entirely through contributions of its membership, and is free to all who need it. To counter the destructive consequences of sex and love addiction we draw on five major resources:
1. Sobriety: our willingness to stop acting out in our own personal bottom-line addictive behaviour on a daily basis.
2. Sponsorship/meetings: our capacity to reach out for the supportive fellowship within S.L.A.A.
3. Steps: our practice of the twelve step program of recovery to achieve sexual and emotional sobriety.
4. Service: our giving back to the S.L.A.A. Community what we continue to freely receive.
5. Spirituality: our developing a relationship with a power greater than ourselves which can guide and sustain us in recovery.
As a fellowship S.L.A.A. has no opinion on outside issues and seeks no controversy. S.L.A.A. is not affiliated with any other organizations, movements or causes, either religious or secular. We are, however, united in a common focus: dealing with our addictive sexual and emotional behaviour. We find a common denominator in our obsessive/compulsive patterns which transcends any personal differences of sexual identity or gender orientation.” We need protect with special care the anonymity of every S.L.A.A. member. Additionally; we try to avoid drawing undue attention to S.L.A.A. as a whole from the public media.
