Dear friends:

Is anyone aware of, or participating in, any Peer-Group Support Organizations (PGSOs)? What I'm looking for is a self-governing peer-based support group similar in structure, if not emphasis, to Alcoholics Anonymous (AA), or more closely Adult Children of Alcoholics (ACA or ACOA). I've found a few mentions of groups such as this on the internet, that deal with recovery from Childhood Sexual Abuse, but wanted first-hand, or at least second-hand, information and experience from someone on MaleSurvivor. What do you know?



My mantras:

Easy Does I - - - - - - L o il y a la vie il y a l'espoir.
One Day At A Time - - - L o il y a l'espoir: la vie.
First Things First- - - Where there's life there's hope.
LIVE and Let Live - - - Where there is hope: life.

I participate in a peer support group for male survivors. It has been a wonderful experience for me to have men I can share with about the issues we all face.

What would you like to know about the group?
