The social hour will begin at 6 p.m.; dinner will be served at 7 p.m.
Intergroup will provide the meat, drinks, tableware, and decorations for the party. Each person/couple is asked to bring a salad, covered dish or dessert to share.
To avoid an overabundance of one dish and none of another, it is suggested that guests bring items based on their last initial:
- A-I Appetizer or Salad
- J-R Hot Dish
- S-Z Dessert
A flyer with complete details will be available following the November Intergroup meeting.
IISAA Fall Retreat – October 19, 20, 21, 2018
Exploring the Cardinal Principals of Recovery
This retreat is for sex addicts and co-dependents of sex addicts who are members of SA, SAA, SCA, SLAA and COSA.
Cardinal Principals of Recovery
One definition of the word “principle” is, the basic way in which something works. And, that is the way we are using the term as we look at the basics of the SAA program.
Some principles are defined within the structure of an organization. Just as there are an official 12 Steps, 12 Traditions and 12 Concepts of Service, that many recovery programs follow, there are also 12 Principles. Some of the other basic understandings of working a recovery program are experiential; they are learned in the process of doing the work.
Much of the “collective experience” of 12-Step programs is sharing those principles of recovery that have led others to sobriety and serenity.
During the retreat, we will examine both the formal and informal principles that underlie our program of recovery.
If you decide to attend the retreat after October 5, it is best to register by phone. Please call Mike C. at (317) 784-2180.
