Sexual Compulsives Anonymous will be staring a new group here at The LOFT and is going to start meeting
Thursday, June 7th from 7pm-8:15pm. The group will be meeting every Thursday after that.
Sexual Compulsives Anonymous (SCA) is a 12-Step Recovery program for sexual compulsion, sex addiction and romantic obsession.
SCA'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.
