Recovery takes time and so does meeting new friends. I have been working with individuals who are in recovery, or have received treatment for their trauma, to help them rebound to move forward in their lives, careers, and relationships using the 8-Step Process.
PTSD Daily is in the personal development business, not recovery per se, hence, the Meetup title is misleading. Making friends and needing medical treatment are not one and the same.
Therefore, I had to make a decision to reorganize the group. The reorganization of the group will be done through our FB page where we will list events for people to meet other people in a more relaxed casual environment, unlike therapy.
This group will have members worldwide, so I encourage you to sign up with your email on FB or our website PTSDDaily.org or Instagram. I wanted a safe place for us to converse and share our stories of connection across the globe. I could not do this on Meetup.com. Only public groups can be promoted worldwide on Meetup and that was not something I was willing to compromise.
I also setup a new private FB group that is extended to individuals who enroll in the 8-Step Process or purchase the book.
Thank you for your interest. I look forward to seeing your comments and suggestions on online.
