It is, quite simply, an unforgettable theatrical experience."

    SCA meets weekly on Thursday evenings from 7pm-8:15pm starting June 7th.

    CA's primary purpose is to stay sexually sober and to help others to achieve sexual sobriety. Members are encouraged to develop their own sexual recovery plan, and to define sexual sobriety for themselves.

    It is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strength and hope with each other, that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from sexual compulsion.
