We have a Step One Workshop scheduled for Saturday, January 13th, 2018. The workshop will run from 10:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., in Art Room #2 at Plummer Park, 7377 Santa Monica Blvd., in the City of West Hollywood. We ask for a $5.00 to $10.00 donation to cover expenses, but no one is turned away for lack of funds. These workshops are for anyone who wants to stop having compulsive sex—there is no other requirement.

Are you overwhelmed by getting started? Can’t let go of your old acting-out behaviors? Don’t know where to begin? This introductory workshop is directed toward the Newcomer or any Member struggling with their Sexual Compulsion, Sex Addiction, Love Addiction or Romance Addiction. Step One is not about convincing anyone else that we belong in SCA; it is about convincing ourselves that we belong here. We also encourage attendance by anyone who is court-appointed to attend regular SCA meetings, and who is interested in asking questions, finding out more about SCA, and making your time with us productive.

More experienced members, and those starting over in SCA are also welcome to attend and add to the discussion. We start at 10:00 a.m., however; we need not stay for the entire allotted time if our examination of the Program is exhausted. But please make an effort to begin at the same time as the rest of us.

Our goal in any workshop is to create a safe space in which to help identify the signs of sexual compulsion, and to discuss and share what works best in our recovery. This continuing series of workshops is: To help orient and retain those new to the Fellowship of SCA; for those seeking a breakthrough in their recovery from compulsive sexual behavior; and it is to help other members move forward in staying sexually sober, through working the Twelve Steps of SCA and using the other Tools of the Program. The workshop will be conducted in English. We hope to see you there.

We have done workshops on each of the “Twelve Steps of SCA,”  “Stepping Through The Holidays,” “Getting Started or Restarted in SCA,” the “Tools That Help Us Get Better,” and on “The Characteristics.” We are always interested in fielding requests for workshops, and finding new facilitators to lead workshops; especially workshops that we have not done before. Please give us feedback, as to the next workshop you would like to see, or persons in the Southern California region whom you would like to nominate to facilitate a workshop.

If your SCA group would like to host a workshop, we will do what we can to help. We will do our best to find facilitators who can go to your location when you want us and if we cannot, we hope to provide your group with information on how to conduct your own workshop. Please email us now, to get the dialog started. You may address your comments to

If you would like to facilitate a workshop, please contact us at least sixty days ahead of time, because of the lead-time necessary for preparation and promotion of workshops. We try to hold them roughly on the second Saturday of the month, every other month.  You may email us at: with suggestions for additional workshops.
