I don't know if it's an option for you but I have started a group in conjunction with the rape crisis center of North Carolina.

We meet a couple on a tuesday of each month, in hickory NC.

(828)322-6011 or visit

it's a small group but I am hoping to make it grow!

Thanks, eyes. That's about 2.5 hours away, which might be tough on a Tuesday, but I'm not counting it out. Thanks again for the info.

Hey I have a great therapist in Asheville, NC. I will ask him on Tuesday and see if he knows of someone in your area. He works for a large group that specializes in Male Survivors. I will let you know.

I've been looking for a group to meet up with but haven't had any luck. I'm located in Graham which is between Greensboro and Raleigh. Wish Hickory was closer, I'd attend one of your meetings. Maybe one day all of us could meet in a central location. That would be nice.

P.S. MJ has a lead foot! hehe.

Wow, this 2 1/2 year old thread is revived. Unfortunately, still nothing around here that I am aware of. I guess Roanoke might be roughly half way between Front Royal and Raliegh (LOL)! Let me know when you guys want to make the drive! ;o)

Peace,

John

Hey everyone I am also from this area and have been looking for a group as well. There is some type of survivor's group (dealing with all abuse emotional, physical, and sexual) that (is coed in the triangle area of NC from meetup.com but there hasn't been much activity and meetings continue to get canceled for the last year. After being here 3 and a half years I have only just recently found a good psychiatrist that is professional, intelligent , and familiar with sexual abuse. I don't know if anyone is familiar with the ACT team but they are a case-manager type group connected with my clinic and I suggeseted to them to start a sexual abuse survivor's group and they are actually looking into it, you would have to pay for it if it is not covered by your insurance but I only have medicade and they said I would be covered so I will keep everyone up to date, this would be in Goldsboro which is 45 minutes to an hour east of Raleigh.

I'm also looking for recommendations of therapists in VA. Any info on therapists, maybe also support groups is very much appreciated. Preferably within a reasonable driving distance of Roanoke, VA.

Jeff & Shawushka,

You need to register with the VA Hospital, Clinic, or The Vet Center by showing your DD214. You will be assigned a General Practictioner (MD) and when you see the Dr. ask for a referral to Mental Health. They are Sociologists (Masters or PhD's), & Psychiatrists. They do provide, group counseling, for PTSD, sexual disorder groups & they counsel one on one basis also.
If you have lost or misplaced your DD214 I can tell you of a website to get one quickly. I have it hear somewhere, just got to hunt for it. You must have an Honorable Discharge. They will mail it to you, or if you have a FAX you will get it sooner.
Hope this assists our Veterans out there!
Don

Did I misunderstand VA for Veteran's Administration not thinking of Virginia, Va?
Sorry Sawushka.

lol, LoDon. No wonder I didn't understand what you were talking about.
Have you posted that on the new Military Survivor part of the forum? It sounds like it could be helpfull to a lot of other members.

Ya, I did post it on the VA site. What a stupid shit that Don is! I feel like walking in the Ladies shower room with my balls hangin down, as all the woman are pointing and laughing at me! Now no one will ever take me seriously! Luckily I don't have anything inteligent to say.
That is why I survived the Military. When we proceeded forward, I was looking at my boots, and wound up going in the wrong direction! That's my survivor story.

Ah,Don, don't speak of yourself like that. You just gave me good giggle and you can bet I felt 10 times more stupid. I'm a newcomer, had no clue what VA also stands for and just thought 'wow, what an advanced system they have in Virginia.'.
I'm still laughing at myself.
VA, Veteran Affairs. You taught me something new.

I went to an ASCA group today in Raleigh. I had been isolating a lot over the last couple of weeks and wasn't sure if I was going to go but I'm glad I did because it was helpful and I did connect with most of the people there. I started to tell my story but had a panic attack and had to stop. It is coed ( it was about a half and half ratio) but it was a very safe, comfortable, and supportive group. If anyone is interested here is the link www.ascasupport.org, it meets the second and fourth Saturday of each month.

Hi, Andy,

I just completed the 2012 MS retreat. I live in Greensboro, NC and work in Winston-Salem. If you're interested in starting a group, let me know.

I am a survivor and live in Farmville, VA. I have attended the ASCA support group in Raleigh since March of this year. It is a 2.5 hour drive for me each way two Saturday's a month which will occur again July 14 and 28. My experience has been extremely positive with that group even though it is both male and female. I am actively trying to organize a support group for Male Survivors somewhere in Central Virginia. Have posted on craigslist's Community Groups both in Lynchburg and Charlottesville and received little response. I am confident a group can be organized. Thinking the Lynchburg area could be a reasonable central location for many who would be able to drive up to one hour to meet... whether it be a weekday evening or weekend day/evening. I live 1 hour east of Lynchburg and as a business owner am confident I can arrange a good meeting place. I have discussed forming a more localized group with the facilitator of the ASCA Raleigh group... however I am interested in the group be for Male Survivors only. I know it can be done. Anyone who would like to assist, be part of the group in this area of VA or offer any suggestions please contact me. I know it will take sometime to get the group going but am confident it will happen. Thanks, Craig
