    Sexual Compulsives Anonymous (SCA)

    Sexual Compulsives Anonymous (SCA) is a 12-Step Recovery program for sexual compulsion, sex addiction and romantic obsession.

    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.

PrideWorks, Inc. is now solely responsible for this conference, and sponsors or co-sponsors other events (such as celebrations of National Coming Out Day and Ally Week, networking meetings, and Gay Prom) alone and in partnership with other areas agencies.
