At the last business meeting our collaboration with other 12-Step programs was discussed. Tradition 4. It was decided that we must maintain an allegiance to LAA recovery while reaching out the other programs. We cannot let their ideology affect our program.
For example, SLAA and AA believe in abstinence after withdrawal. LAA believes that love is a good thing if experienced in a healthy way. No contact may be good for OLA (obsessive love addicts) but it does not work for codependent parents and spouses. In this sense, we are more like OA. Food addicts do not stop eating but eat in healthy ways.
I am glad this came up so I have a chance to clarify this as love addicts seem to dominate this message board. But this program is also for codependents despite its name.
