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.

RitL : Outreach & Support

We are always looking for assistance in carrying the message of Recovery in the Lifestyle. At this time we have several ways to assist with outreach.


Recently, our General Services committee voted to create an official "Outreach Chairperson" position, and Zee has graciously stepped up to be of service. If you know of a lifestyle event that might be willing to host an RitL meeting, or print and distribute some of our flyers, please contact Zee at:


We have worked to create an "Outreach Flyer" - it is available for download in our document center - here. Additionally, we have several variations of web banners available. Please feel free to link to us. We also have a group on the FetLife forums to help carry our message and to assist lifestylers in recovery to connect with each other.

For helping with traditional outreach, we recently printed some postcard/flyers which can be posted or otherwise distributed to recovery and/or lifestyle clubs, events, munches, etc. If you wish to have some, please contact us so we can distribute them. If you would like us to send them to particular locations (or if you would be willing to receive a stack of them for you to distribute) please contact us.

We also have a "General Services" committee for RitL. We would love every member to have a voice in the future direction of our fellowship, so please check out the web page and let us know if you can get involved and be of service - or please pass the link along to someone else who might be able to participate.

Additionally, we would like to assist anyone interested in starting and/or finding a meeting. We are collecting contact information of prospective members and are willing to act as intermediaries to help people get in contact with each other - while maintaining anonymity. For more information regarding that, please visit the pages:
