Also, please excuse our appearance, any excess noise and the disarray of the space. This is a temporary location. Still, we intend to make this a warm welcoming home for the LGBT recovery community.
We have a full service cafe that serves a variety of hot and cold beverages as well as chips, cookies, donuts, cake, and candy.
The Live and Let Live Alano Club hosts more non-traditional AA meetings than other clubs in San Diego. We have been instrumental in providing specialty meetings, including for atheists, agnostics, the leather and kink community, the trans community and those who identify with the culture of the LGBT community. The club also hosts 35+ meetings a week including for Adult Children of Alcoholics (ACOA) Sexual Compulsive (SCA) Narcotics Anonymous (NA) Crystal Meth Anonymous (CMA) Co-Dependent Anonymous (CODA) Gambling Anonymous (GA) Nicotine (NicA) and Marijuana Anonymous (MA) meetings.
The Live and Let Live Alano Club helps address the first and second largest health issues in the LGBT community: HIV and addiction which helps save lives. Having a community center like the LLLAC in the neighborhood is a safe place for LGBT-friendly community members to come and get recovery. We also have rapid test HIV testing (monthly) as well as safe sex literature, condoms and lube provided by Family Health Centers of San Diego. We also have free legal council here once each week to help those with legal matters.
People die every day of addiction and HIV infection resulting from being alcoholic or having an addiction. We carry the message of recovery, by human example to the LGBT community that there is vibrant life after addiction that no one needs to go it alone. Freedom from active addictions is desirable and achievable.
LLLAC is a not for profit corporation (4th Oldest GLBT Sober Center in US) that is open to the public 365 days a year. We provide meeting space to 40,000 participants annually in over 37 Twelve-step recovery meetings and produce clean and sober events throughout the year.
