If anyone still reads this thread, I am in Prescott Valley, AZ, and looking for a male CSA survivors group that's at least as close as Phoenix. If it's that far, though, I guess I could do once a month at best, but I would be thrilled to discover there were other male survivors nearby and we could meet and discuss and do like a 12 step thing.

iaccus, brother, I'm aware of enough to want the best if possible... you know what I mean.

I just looked, man, there's not a group for csa to be found in any Google or Bing search, nor does it seem the one group labeled Tempe on MS site of Arizona groups might actually be?'
http://www.malesurvivor.org/support_grou...-support-group/

But check that MS link anyway, it means you leave a message with the guy listed. The message box is at the bottom of the page. Otherwise you would call that number.

If that's not in the cards, my search shows there's only therapists groups, or open anxiety or co-dependency groups. I think co-dep might be useful, but when needing a safe place to bring up csa ptsd, I just don't know?

An idea came to me. My T mentioned an app for my phone or computer that shows people doing groups for hundreds of reasons. It's called "Meetup". I've looked and it seems, someday I might try one just to restart social interaction of some other kind? But, I noticed something while looking in Phoenix, and it's very interesting. I'll be looking around Minneapolis for one, now that I'm aware. I don't know if you would want something like this for the short visit, but if anything would be useful, I think it would be "Unconditional Love" as a free, and inviting group. So, here's one of two links:
1) http://www.loving-groups.com/free-support-groups

2) https://www.meetup.com/LOVING-GROUPS/

I mentioned I've not joined any group yet, but I really am going to keep considering it.

Because of the recent considerations, and past with Arizona, I'm trying to think of something that might help, and it seemed possible?

Bless you iaccus!

thank you ceremony for taking the time to do that search! I have been looking most of the day and haven't found anything either. I will look into your suggestions! I guess I thought I would take a shot in the dark by posting to this thread.

I just spent time looking locally here, and found one in St. Paul, Mn, and it looked interesting. It's going to stay on my radar.

I agree to checking like this. There has to be stuff for us sometime. That MS and other exist is encouraging. Awareness for services will grow eventually.
