How We Heal from Sexual Trauma

Millions of people have been victims of sexual assault. And millions of those people turn to drugs and alcohol to numb their pain. We are all survivors. But how can we not only survive, but thrive? How can we heal our trauma and our addiction at the same time?

By facing them both.

Some of us are already on this path. We can help others along the way, sharing our experiences and wisdom. Finding and giving inspiration.
