What we're about

COVID-19 NOTES: We plan to resume meeting in person as soon as possible. In the meantime, there are excellent online meetings. The NAASCA (National Association of Adult Survivors of Child Abuse) has 3 meetings per week posted on their home page at www.naasca.org

There is an Adult Survivors of Child Abuse RDU (Raleigh/Durham NC) Meetup group that has bi-weekly step meetings (21 steps of ASCA program) online. Feel free to join that one as well. They are at www.meetup.com/RDU-Adult-Survivors-Of-Child-Abuse

If you have any questions or comments, please don't hesitate to contact us.

About this group:

This group is for anyone healing from the trauma of childhood physical, sexual, verbal, emotional, mental, narcissistic, cult, occult, and/or ritual abuse or neglect. Our weekly Meetups are every Tuesday from 7pm to 9pm. Please know that you are not broken and you are not alone. We are here for each other.

One member recently commented, "I had an amazing time and so glad I stepped out of my comfort zone and attended a meetup. I thank all of you for being so kind, loving and supportive towards me. I needed that more than you could ever know."

We use the "Survivor to Thriver" guidebook to help steer us through the recovery process. But, we allow for sharing as needed. Our primary concern is to provide a supportive environment to aid in your recovery and ours. We do our best to make this a safe place to share from our heart, and we invite everyone who attends to listen with care and compassion.

*This group is led by a survivor with no formal education in therapy. We would encourage you to find a therapist if you're not working with one already.

You may contribute online ('Chip In') from the Members page (https://www.meetup.com/SurvivorsAnonymous/members/) in the right-hand column to help cover the cost to organize a Meetup. Below are some resources which you may find helpful.
