COSLAA Preamble

Welcome to COSLAA, Codependents of Sex and Love Addicts Anonymous. We are a group of relatives, friends, and significant others who have come together to share our experience, strength, and hope so that we may find solutions to our problems in dealing with sex and love addiction in our lives.

We believe that sex and love addiction is a family illness, whether it be a family of origin or relationship of choice. By looking at our own attitudes and behaviors, we can find a new way of life that will allow us to be happier. We do this by practicing the Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions of COSLAA, defining our own bottom line in dealing with the disease, and developing a relationship with a Power greater than ourselves.

The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop living out a pattern of codependency to a sex and love addict. We remember that coming to a first meeting can be very difficult. We encourage you to attend 4-6 meetings before deciding whether or not this 12 step group will be helpful to you. As stated in our traditions, we are self-supporting through our contributions. We are not affiliated with any other organizations, movements, or causes, and we are neither religious nor secular.

Our primary purpose is to reach the family, friends, and significant others who suffer, regardless of sexual or gender orientation. We must protect with special care the anonymity of every COSLAA member and any contact with SLAA members and try to avoid drawing undue attention to COSLAA as a whole from the public media.


  1. I hope to hear from the willimantic CT group.

  2. Hello,

    I live in NH and am looking for groups near me (ME/NH- seacoast area). If there aren’t groups in my area, might you be able to recommend on-line groups/discussions, sponsors (others in recovery – either an addict or co-dependent), books or other resources? I need help desperately. I’ve been w/my partner for 1 1/2 yrs and we’ve only recently learned of his addiction- or more appropriately, we now finally have an answer to explain the behaviors we’ve struggled with. I need to learn more about this addiction, how to support myself and how to best support him if we are to stay together and work through this.

    Thank you,
