“I was on the road to destruction … I thank this course from the bottom of my heart and soul!”

Steps to Sexual Health is a 10 week individual program which facilitates restoration and a new perspective for individuals dealing with sexual misuse, trauma, or abuse.

Sexual abuse happens to 1 in 3 women and 1 in 6 men. Sexual abuse involves unwanted or coerced sexual involvement. Sexual trauma is an unwanted, unasked for, and/or an age-inappropriate sexual encounter.

Sexual abuse and trauma causes physical, emotion, and spiritual pain. Pain demands medication. Some destructive behaviors that are commonly used to “medicate” the pain of abuse are:

  • alcohol
  • drugs
  • overeating or not eating
  • pretending
  • anger
  • disconnecting
  • control
  • depression
  • suicidal attempts
  • sexual addiction

The only healthy way to deal with the pain is to acknowledge it and work through the pain and grief … When the pain is gone there is no need for medication.

 Some myths of perpetrators:

  • They did it without thinking
  • They only did it to me
  • I somehow asked for it
  • My perpetrator had pain
  • The person was drunk or high

It’s important for you to know that it was not your fault. The perpetrator made the choice to act out; you can stop blaming yourself. It was not your fault but only you can take responsibility for healing and moving forward.
