What's SCA About?


Statement of Purpose

Sexual Compulsives Anonymous is a 12 step 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. The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop having compulsive sex. There are no dues or fees for SCA membership; we are self-supporting through our own contributions. SCA is not allied with any sect, denomination, politics, organization, or institution; does not wish to engage in any controversy; neither endorses nor opposes any causes.

Our 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. We are not here to repress our God-given sexuality, but to learn how to express it in ways that will not make unreasonable demands on our time and energy, place us in legal jeopardy -- or endanger our mental, physical or spiritual health.

 SCA Intergroup meeting evey 2nd Sunday at First Slice on Ashland at 5:30pm; Closed Meeting 

  • Intergroup is a committee of people who represent SCA meetings in a particular city or region.  These individuals volunteer to serve as their meeting's Intergourp representative for a term defined by the meeting they represent. Serving as an Intergroup representative is an excellent way to help carry the message forward to addicts who still suffer, do service for the fellowship, and advance one's own recovery.  
  • Each SCA meeting is autonomous. However, all meetings benifit if a committee exists to coordinate processes, activities and events that are of interest to all meetings.
  • With the money donated by the meetings, Intergroup can work on carrying the message to the addicts who still suffer by: Creating and maintaining the Chicagoland SCA website, maintain a local phone line, plan/fund the Day of Recovery, create and distribute newcomer packets, be a point of contact for counselors or therapists, sponsor and promote social events, and maintain our relationship with the International Service Organization 
  • Intergroup is funded through 7th tradition donations from individual meetings. We are also funded through ticket sales for the Day of Recovery.  Direct donations from our members are also accepted 
  • Intergroup is currently meeting at the IHOP where Broadway and Halstead meet on the second Sunday of the month
