EDITOR'S NOTE: Although the majority of NAASCA's members identify as survivors of child abuse and trauma, others are people who deal with these things from a professional perspective (or both). Be sure to take advantage of their experience and desire to serve the survivor community. They can be very helpful as we fight against child abuse and trauma. We wish to express our gratitude for what NAASCA's Professionals offer us.

When not appropriately identified and treated in childhood, the trauma that accompanies having experienced the crime of child sexual abuse creates lifelong challenges to victims'/survivors' overall health, well-being and relationship-capacity, as well as their productivity and ability to fully thrive in all areas of their lives. ISUVOA will provide information and referrals for a variety of cognitive behavioral therapist for child sexual abuse survivors. We would make every effort to locate specialized treatment and appropriate community resources around every clients location.

ISUVOA' efforts to provide appropriate information, education, and support service to Adult Survivors has shown marked improvements to their health and quality of life. Our 2015 support group member evaluations showed that:

94% reported a better understanding of trauma and how it affects them
50% reported fewer suicidal thoughts
80% reported fewer episodes of self-harm
85% reported fewer episodes of problem drinking or substance abuse
80% reported increased ability to function in daily life 99% reported feeling safer
97% reported increased ability to set boundaries, which can reduce the likelihood of future interpersonal violence.

Tool from "Male Survivor"

- Find a Therapist/Professional -
The MaleSurvivor community provides resources and support for men who were sexually victimized as children, adolescents, or adults. Any person who has been sexually abused - male or female - experiences lasting effects and enduring emotional pain. Most of the organizations that serve survivors of sexual abuse have been created by women for women. Because so few people know that large numbers of males are sexually abused, male survivors have been unseen, neglected and therefore underserved.

Tool from "Let Go .. Let Peace Come In Foundation"

- Treatment Facilities - State by State -
The journey to your recovery will follow a long and arduous path. It is recommended that you seek the help of qualified professionals to guide you along the way. The foundation has compiled a list of resources for each state as well as international sites where survivors and their families can find the help they so desperately need.
