FAQ

Can a WhatsApp Chat Group be a SLAA Group?

Yes

Any two or more persons gathered together for mutual aid in
recovering from sex and love addiction may call themselves an S.L.A.A. group, provided that as a group they have no other affiliation.

SLAA Tradition 3

FWS accepts WhatsApp, Telegram, Signal and many other online chats as eligible platforms when members decide to register as a new Group.

The expressions “Group” and “Meeting” are often used interchangeably in 12 Step, but the Traditions themselves define that it is Groups, not Meetings, that are eligible to form part of SLAA.

We suggest when registering to describe the Chat Group as a 24/7 seven day a week chatgroup meeting.

Any Group that is registered with FWS as a Group is eligible to join as a Member of the SLAAvirtual Intergroup. Here is the link to Register your Group, if your online Group votes in Group Conscience to register as a Group with SLAA.

Voting on the SLAAvirtual Intergroup and for a Delegate to Conference is one vote per Group, not one vote per Meeting, so keep that in mind when you register with FWS.
