“The problem that I have found with many groups is the pushing of anti-depressants as a form of treatment, which can cover up the feeling and memories you need to release. In my home town, we actually started our own drug-free group because of this belief. This is by no means a complete list of services, but it is a place to begin. I have not used all of these support groups, so I cannot endorse their services.” -Amy Marschak
