SCA Los Angeles introduced an Outreach Campaign at WEHO Pride in 2017 and is looking to bring awareness to our 12-step recovery program again in 2018. 

Here are a couple of ads used to target individuals addicted to hook-up apps and internet pornography.

Prison Outreach Correspondence Assistance needed!

| No Comments

SCA is currently looking for members of the fellowship who are willing to assist with our prison correspondence outreach program.

SCA often receives letters of inquiry from incarnated individuals who need guidance.  Our goal is to offer support while staying focused on the 12 suggested steps of SCA and staying within the parameters of the 12 traditions.

If you have any questions or would like to help, please email Rich K. at

There are very specific guidelines we follow and this service commitment comes with some restrictions.

Successful socializing in Berlin

Thumbnail image for Berlin Holiday Party

Matthias reports from Berlin ...

I'd just like to share a great experience with you. Last Saturday we had a wonderful holiday event.

With 20 participants at an SCA meeting of nearly 2 hours, it was the biggest in history of SCA Berlin.

This was followed by perfect readings, performance of old-fashioned singing and dancing (Indian and French), singing of traditional German Christmas songs played by 3 great pianists at the grand piano, and at the end of this evening, a final singing of "Last Christmas" by Wham.

From starting decoration till final cleaning, a wonderful experience for 5 hours.

Yes, maybe a bit early, but fully loaded with positive energy from that evening, I'd like to send you my best wishes for a beautiful Christmas-time and all the best for a wonderful New Year 2018 in recovery.

SCA website has a makeover

| No Comments

The main SCA website went live in April 1996. Now 21 years old, it has received its third makeover.

The effort was led by Marty S., who headed an ad-hoc committee of the International Service Organization to come up with a new design. Over several years, the design was tested and tweaked by a team headed by Marty, a member of Online Intergroup. ISO approved the new design at its annual meeting in Los Angeles.

The site gets a webmaster for the first time in several years, Greg I. of New York Intergroup. The International Meeting List has also received an overhaul, now being handled by a database administered by Matthias P. of Berlin Intergroup. 

The online store also has a new look, and puts into effect the Wholesale Pricing Policy adopted by ISO. Orders will go to the new Literature Distribution Coordinator, Doyle of Los Angeles Intergroup.

These active members of the Fiduciary Committee, along with the stalwart David N. (former Archivist, former Literature Distribution Coordinator, and all-around good guy), are the volunteers who make ISO's "back office" function. 

If you are interested in joining us, we will have a telephone conference call on Saturday, Oct. 7. Use the "Contact Us" form on the SCA site to get information.

In service,

John F., fiduciary chair, ISO
Paris Intergroup
