Members who’ve been in SLAA for a while start to notice subtle changes in their attitudes and behavior. They find that their relationship status isn’t as important now as is the relationship they are forming with God, themselves and with others. A whole new world of possibilities had opened up to them especially in the way they looked at themselves. This new way of ‘being’ is expressed in the SLAA ‘Signs of Recovery.’ This workshop will focus on three of the ‘Signs of Recovery.’ It will feature speakers as well as small group sharing.

For more information, see this flyer.
