Extractions: Dear Alice, I am a male survivor of childhood (homo)sexual abuse and incest. I have recently stopped my horribly abusive alcohol and drug habits and am having to deal more with my issues now that I'm not using "painkillers." I'm worried that if I don't do something soon, I might be miserable for the rest of my life and may never be able to have a relationship or even sex. I am very hurt by the fact that there are no resources on campus for male survivors. All the groups are for women as if male survivors don't exist . Anyways, please refer me to any resources you are aware of in NYC. Thanks. Signed, Uncomfortable Dear Uncomfortable, It's great that you're taking the next steps towards healing and recovery. You're right, most support groups for survivors of childhood sexual abuse and incest are geared towards women, but there are also many that are geared to both women and men. From your question, it appears you are interested in a group for male survivors only. In New York City, there's the Center for Adults Sexually Abused as Children (ASAC), which offers support groups for men only, as well as for women only and for both men and women together. ASAC also has individual counseling. You can call or write them at: ASAC 240 East 20th Street New York, NY 10003
