Sex and Love Addicts Anonymous (SLAA) is a Twelve Step program for people seeking recovery from sex addiction and love addiction. SLAA was founded in Boston, Massachusetts in 1977, by a musician who was also a member of Alcoholics Anonymous (AA). Though he had been a member of AA for many years, he consistently acted out and was serially unfaithful to his wife. He founded SLAA as an attempt to stop his compulsive sexual behavior. SLAA is also sometimes known as the Augustine Fellowship, because early members saw much of their shared symptoms described by St. Augustine of Hippo in his work Confessions.
