Peer Support

Professional help plays a critical role in healing for those touched by sibling sexual trauma in any way. But it does not replace peer support–connecting with other people who are walking the same path you are on, or have walked it and survived. Simply realizing they are not alone is a profound step for most people who seek out any of these groups.  


Al-Anon and 12-Step Programs can be useful for families and individuals dealing with any kind of addiction, and as a confidential support group for anyone with difficult, complicated family issues.

For survivors:
