800 number response

There is a service position available to anyone who has at least a year on a sexual recovery plan.

Volunteers from anywhere in the United States or Canada are needed to respond to the calls that come in on our 800 number. It is a two-day commitment every week and should take no more than 10 minutes of your time. If you are interested, please contact outreach@sca-recovery.org, 1 212 799 0952, 1 646 415 1542. I am the Chair of ISO’s Outreach Committee.
