Hello men,

I am a 40 year old survivor living in Lake County, Indiana who wants to start a men's support group. I was a member of such a group in Illinois for some two years and I have significant 12 step group experience as well. If interested please reply. Sincerely,

rafael \:\)

Hello Michael Joseph:

Thanks for your reply. However, I live right on the Indiana/Illinois border, some distance from you. If you too desire to join a group I encourage you to place a listing on this board. And, you may find this book helpful: "A Circle of Men" by Bill Kauth. The men's group I was a part of was based on this book's directions and lessons. It was definitely a good experience. Take care. Sincerely,

rafael

Rafael,

Although I no longer live in Lake county, that is where I was abused. It does my heart good to know you are trying to start a healing group in the area where my pain started.

Thank you
Ken

Kenf:

You are welcome. I am attempting to start a group, but so far I am struggling to find men interested. Sadly, too many men keep their pain inside and do not know how or are not interested in sharing openly and honestly with fellow caring men. Getting a group going is not easy but, I will not give up hope. I wish us both well on our healing journeys. Sincerely,

Contender:

I am not an expert on 12 step sex addiction groups. I recommend you contact the groups: SIA and ISA. They both have websites. You can go to http://www.google.com and enter "SIA" or "ISA" in the search box. That need get you there. Good luck.
