Recovery in the Lifestyle : RitL is a fellowship of BDSM lifestyle people and guests who are in recovery or would like to be. It is based on the 12 steps of recovery and recognizes that anonymity is most important for us all.

How to become a Member of Recovery in the Lifestyle

Tradition 3
"The only requirement for membership is a desire to be in Recovery in the Lifestyle."


Our fellowship is open and easy to join. However, as our fellowship is new, finding a meeting to attend is not as easy as it is in more established fellowships. We are here to help.


We strive to keep an up to date list of all RitL meetings.


We also offer help for anyone who seeks to start a meeting.


If you want to add your name to the list of people who are seeking support with starting or finding an RitL meeting, please contact us if you wish to be put on a mailing list as someone who's interested in attending a RitL meeting in your area.


All of our fellowships' literature is available for download in .pdf format in our Document Center. This includes our 12 steps & 12 traditions, sample meeting formats, and our preamble.
