Primary Purpose and Group Safety
Our primary purpose is to offer a safe place to recover from love addiction and to carry the message of recovery to those who still suffer.
LAA a not a dating club and there is no place for flirting, or any behavior that makes another member feel uncomfortable. If a member feels that they have been approached inappropriately or is negatively impacted by another’s behavior, for whatever reason, they should speak to a service member.
If these principles are broken, the reputation of LAA, the unity of the group, and the well-being of individual members may be adversely affected and is of great concern.
For the good of LAA as a whole, anyone breaching these guidelines may be requested not to attend a particular meeting or meetings until their recovery is more advanced. People with service positions will be relieved of their roles to concentrate on their own recovery. Such decisions should always be made through open discussion.
It is recognized that these behaviors are symptoms of love addiction---usually an addiction to romance. Whenever possible, someone will stay in touch to help all parties involved get back on track with their recovery.

The business meeting suggests incorporating the following points in individual meeting formats, as per group conscience:
- Deactivate private chats on Zoom, except from host and co-hosts.
- Discourage cross talk.
- Encourage extra care on WhatsApp groups.
- Offer an alternative point of contact if the member does not feel they can approach a service member.
Approved unanimously at the International Business Meeting of 7th December, 2020.
