Is anyone interested in a 12 step type phone support group for men who have been incested? I have been involved in 12 step programs for years and have found much healing. Many phone meetings exist for other programs. People can attend from anywhere in the world and the cost is usually nothing if you have plenty of minutes on your phone plan...

Hope,

I'd be interested. SIA and ISA meetings are easily 60 miles away, so this would be a chosen option for me. I used to do CODA phone meetings, for both physical safety and traveling are important factors.

I'd be interested.

Just a word of caution on endeavors such as this:

Please remember that even here, this is still the internet. People are not always what they represent themselves to be. In order to maintain the highest possible safety we do not allow contact information to be shared publicly on this website or our chat room. In addition we strongly discourage private exchange of personal contact information until users have known each other here for at least three months.

If users do choose to meet in a support group such as is mentioned here please take appropriate steps to protect your private information. One way to accomplish that might be to use a free conferencing service.

Above all, please remember that if something doesn't feel right to you then it probably isn't. Follow your instincts.

thanks for that too. I'm here daily, so the bigger world is often forgotten. Thanks for the counsel.
