Cleptomaniacs And Shoplifters Anonymous, LLC (CASA)

CASA is a unique, independent and secular weekly self-help group. It was founded in 1992 by a recovering shoplifter who felt such a group could help himself, others, and the community as a whole.

CASA's purpose is to provide a safe, confidential and non-judgmental space for compassion, understanding and recovery from "addictive-compulsive" dishonest behavior, primarily shoplifting, fraud, kleptomania and embezzlement.

CASA's goal is to educate individuals in the group and the community at large about the complex motivations and recovery treatment process for these behaviors, while emphasizing personal responsibility and accountability. We have helped many and want to do more!

What are CASA meetings like?

While every meeting is unique, the basic structure allows for each person to express his or her feelings, circumstances and own insights about the behavior and how to stop it. We learn from hearing ourselves, as well as listening to others. Laughter and tears, questions and comments, and engaging dialogue are all common.

We can help people help themselves:

  • Overcome legal troubles
  • Strengthen sense of self
  • Heal emotional wounds
  • Rebuild relationships
  • Live more honestly and peacefully
  • Increase self control/awareness
  • Experience great joy - Feel!
  • Help others
Support groups for embezzlement, shoplifting and fraud.
