• Is ISA specifically for early recovery, or dealing with the initial trauma caused by betrayal?
    • No, we created ISA to provide a safe place for individuals at all stages of recovery from infidelity.
  • Do you consider ISA a religious program?
    • We are a spiritual – not religious – program and we welcome people from all spiritual backgrounds.
  • I have difficulties with the concepts of God or Higher Power, can I still attend a meeting and work the ISA 12 steps?
    • Yes. ISA welcomes everyone who has encountered infidelity. You choose what works for you and how you define your Higher Power. Some people have found it helpful to define working the steps or attending a meeting as their Higher Power.  
  • Why is it so important to use “I” statements when sharing in a meeting?
    • When we use “I” statements it forces us to take responsibility for our own beliefs and behaviors. The use of “I” statements also helps to make the meeting safe for others who may disagree with our opinions or have had different life experiences. 
  • What is the difference between a sponsor, a recovery partner, and an accountability partner?
    • A sponsor is a member of the fellowship who has completed the 12-steps and can help you work through the steps.
    • A recovery partner is someone with whom you choose to work the steps when a sponsor is not available.
    • An accountability partner is a friend in the fellowship who helps you to stay in integrity with the commitments you have made to yourself.
