SCA NEW YORK:
SEXUAL COMPULSIVES ANONYMOUS

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

 

It is a fellowship of people 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.

Where to Begin

AM I SEXUALLY COMPULSIVE?

Members of SCA have learned through sharing their experience, strength, and hope with each other  that sexual compulsivity is a disease.  This disease has three dimensions: physical, emotional, and spiritual.  Physically, we engage in sexual behaviors that we know are not healthy for us or that place us in legal, physical, or spiritual jeopardy.  Emotionally, we experience a "high" in contemplating and engaging in the "acting out" behavior, followed by an emotional let-down after acting out has concluded.  Spiritually, we feel disconnected from others, especially from relationships we want to be "healthy" ones.

 

SCA members have devised the Twenty Questions to help newcomers decide whether they are sexually compulsive. 

 

SCA members have found that we share certain characteristics in common.  Click here to see those characteristics.

NEWCOMERS' WELCOME

If you are new to SCA, welcome. It is suggested that those new to the fellowship attend six different meetings within your first two weeks before deciding if SCA is right for you. Meetings have different sizes, topics, formats, and different people. Newcomers are encouraged to attend meetings listed as ‘Beginners’ meetings in order to familiarize yourself with the program; however, you are welcome to attend any SCA meeting at any time. We are glad you are here. Keep coming back.
