Attend S.L.A.A. meetings
Find a local in-person or online meeting using our meeting list. There are also a number of additional online and phone meetings that you take part in. We recommend attending at least six meetings before deciding whether or not this program is right for you.
During these meetings, listen for what you have in common, not for what is different. Sit back, relax, and keep an open mind.
Talk to someone after the meeting
Speak to at least one person after the meeting. Feel free to ask questions. The members are there to help you. If the meeting is followed by a social activity such as going out for coffee, join the group. Use the opportunity to ask questions about the program and get better acquainted with some of the members.
Call a member
If the meeting distributes a phone list, take a copy with you. If not, ask several members for their numbers. Call at least one person on the list to discuss S.L.A.A. during the next week.
Read, discuss, and listen
Read S.L.A.A. literature and/or listen to free S.L.A.A. recordings. Discuss what you have learned with S.L.A.A. members and listen to their experience strength, and hope on that topic.
