We of the Tampa Bay Sex and Love Addicts Anonymous (S.L.A.A.) Intergroup are grateful for your visit to this website. Our hope is that this information will provide you with resources and contact details that you can share with your clients. 

The only qualification for S.L.A.A. membership is a desire to stop living out a pattern of sex and love addiction. Many of our members have been able to maintain continuous abstinence from the various aspects of this addiction through the help and support of our meetings. Moreover, many of us have learned of the S.L.A.A. Fellowship through our contacts with therapists or through treatment centers.

S.L.A.A. meetings are attended by men and women, individuals and couples, and people of all sexualities, identities, backgrounds and beliefs. Members report how healing it is to hear from the diversity of our membership, providing them with perspective, understanding and empathy. There are over 1,200 meetings with roughly 16,000 members located throughout the world. If you have clients who travel, they can attend a S.L.A.A. meeting in over 42 countries, as well as Online Meetings and Telephone Meetings available every day of the week.

We have found that the addict making an inquiry on their own to be a vital next step towards their recovery. If we try to do this for the addict, then it is likely that they aren’t ready to do what recovery requires of them.  

We suggest providing your clients with a link to this website. Additionally, we have both telephone and email helplines. We treat every message or email sent to us by your clients as confidential. You have our commitment that we will do what we can to help them on their recovery journey.
