A New Year 2014 gift to the Adult Survivor of Child Abuse community !!ANNOUNCING: ASCAA -- Adult Survivors of Child Abuse Anonymous -- www.asca12step.org -- a just-launched recovery program, suggested for all survivors of childhood abuse and trauma who wish to heal through applying a new "design for living" based on the 12 Steps & 12 Traditions of AA.
No matter what type of trauma you experienced, be it through violence, sexual assault, emotional abuse or neglect (also known as maltreatment) you belong here.
Our primary purpose is to recover from the abuse and traumas of our youth and help other now-adult victims to heal from theirs. The only requirement for membership is a desire to recover and heal.
Dozens of groups have been created that emulate the AA program of healing and recovery that was first described in the book Alcoholics Anonymous (aka: the "Big Book") in the late 1930's. That's because it works.
Other well known AA literature would include a group of essays written by its co-founder, Bill W, which discusses each of the 12 Steps and 12 Traditions (commonly referred to as the "12&12"). For now, these can both be used to understand the 12 Step program as a "design for living" that results in healing and recovery.
Please visit the www.asca12step.org web site, still under construction, and share it with fellow 12 Step knowledgeable folk.
We'll be anxious to learn what you think !!
