ASCAA - a 12 step program - Adult Survivors of Child Abuse Anonymous


PLEASE NOTE: This is a web site that's still under early construction

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.
But none have been inclusive enough to serve a membership seeking to address all the many issues and types
of childhood abuse and trauma. Ours does. 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.

What is ASCAA?

Adult Survivors of Child Abuse Anonymous (ASCAA) is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strength and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from the abuse and traumas of their youth. The only requirement for membership is a desire to recover and heal. There are no dues or fees for ASCAA membership; we are self-supporting through our own contributions. ASCAA is not allied with any sect, denomination, politics, organization or institution; does not wish to engage in any controversy, neither endorses nor opposes any causes. Our primary purpose is to recover from the abuse and trauma of our youth and help other now-adult victims to heal from theirs.

Who can belong to ASCAA?

Any adult who seeks recovery and healing from abuses and trauma in childhood, including sexual assaults, violent or physical abuse, severe emotional traumas or through neglect, may belong. The only requirement for membership is a desire to recover and heal.

No one need belong to any other 12 Step program nor any spiritual or religious group to belong to ASCAA. We come from every walk of life and are of all ages and experiences. If you wish to heal from the abuse and trauma of your youth you're in the right place !!

A design for living that really works !

We'll closely model our program of healing and recovery after the AA experience .. which has been modified and adjusted many times in the past to address many other specific life-problems. The Big Book describes the program as "a design for living" that really works and works when applied to any number of situations.

An incomplete list of groups that have borrowed the AA program would include Al-Anon and Alateen of course, but also Co-Dependents Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous, Overeaters Anonymous, Gamblers Anonymous, Sexaholics Anonymous, Survivors of Incest Anonymous and many, many more. Here's a list of over 50 such organizations: 12 Step Programs

We have found there are many adult child abuse survivors, already on their healing journey, who've included one or more of these 12 Step programs in their process of recovery .. so right from its launch ASCAA will benefit from their experience, strength and hope.
