Sexual Compulsives Anonymous
Starting a Meeting
It only takes two people to have an SCA meeting, but starting it is another story. These basic guidelines and questions are designed to assist you in starting a meeting of Sexual Compulsives Anonymous.
You may order a "starter kit" that includes a booklet with this material plus (a) the yellow SCA four-fold, (b) a copy of the SCA "Little Blue Book," (c) a copy of Secret Shame, and (d) a copy of Q&A. All of these materials were compiled and produced by members of SCA.
If you are interested in starting an SCA meeting in your area where there are no SCA meetings and would like to know if others nearby you are also interested, complete a form that will send an email to the SCA International Service Organzation. The form will ask for your first name and last initial, your city or town, and an email address for others in your area to contact you. A volunteer will respond and will assist you in starting an SCA meeting in your area.
A Quick Guide to This Material
The Twelve Traditions of SCA form the framework for all SCA meetings and our community. Our First Tradition states, "Personal recovery depends upon SCA unity." You are weaving a very important part of that unity by starting a meeting in your community. You are encouraged to read the Twelve Traditions as a means of laying the roots of a meeting and your recovery in healthy soil.
You are taking a very helpful and encouraging step
toward your recovery, as well as strengthening the well-being of our
program and its outreach services. So, when someone calls us and asks, "Do
you have a meeting in my area?" we can proudly say, "YES!" -- all because
of your efforts. Thank you!
