"For the first time in my life I didn't feel alone."

Those are words heard over and over again by people who attend a MaleSurvivor Weekend of Recovery. As survivors, many of us struggle with feelings of shame and stigma that keep us isolated from one another. By connecting here, on the website, you have taken the first steps to breaking through the isolation and through the pain to begin a journey of healing. For more than 10 years, at over 60 retreats, over 1000 men and women, survivors and therapists, husbands, wives, and partners have come together to help support one another as we embark on those healing journeys.

The weekend gave me an opportunity to share my experience with others and break out of my isolation. It reminded me that being a victim is a choice and that I can choose to be a survivor instead.

This weekend provided me with the tools I needed to begin my recovery journey while offering me a safe, comfortable, supportive environment to experience the wide array of emotions that hit me over the course of the weekend.
