Weekend of Recovery (WOR) Retreats provide support for any male – 18 or older – who is a survivor of sexual trauma as a child and/or as an adult. Healing in community is a powerful way to lessen isolation and reduce feelings of shame. By engaging participants in creating an environment that supports safety needs for male survivors, our program format seeks to acknowledge and to honor the authentic diversities of attendees at each WOR (racial, ethnic, class, spirituality, sexuality, gender, etc.). Alumni of WOR retreats report the experience contributed to easing their suffering; to enabling higher functioning; to facilitating healthier relationships with friends, partners, children; to inspiring activism; and to diminishing the cycle of victimization.

The Weekends of Recovery (WOR) are conducted at locations throughout the United States. Venues are carefully selected with special attention to providing safe environments for positive healing experiences.  Because of the high quality of facilities, the special environment setting, and the superior competency of staff – we have established a unique working relationship with each of the site locations.

The program offers a wide range of activities designed for safety and with attention for how to engage male survivors who may have a long history of isolation. Our events provide a blending of large and small group activities. Visit  What is WOR? for more information.

Days of Recovery are shortened versions of our longer weekend programs.

We do not want cost to be a barrier for anyone to attend any of our retreats.

Registration fees cover the actual costs for conducting a WOR and are not to generate a profit. The fees are inclusive of lodging (two nights), food (seven meals), and program services.
  However, if you are unable to pay the entire cost, we allow you to submit payment for an amount that better reflects your budget.  We do require a minimum payment of 10% of the actual cost.
