Sexual Assault Survivors Anonymous (SASA) is a 12 step program of recovery for those suffering the effects of sexual assault. NO Means NO Worldwide encourages students to tell and tell and tell if someone is sexually abusing them or threatening to. If a student doesnâ€™t have anyone they trust in their social network they are encouraged to tell their SD instructor so that they can access the help they need. When a student comes forward and discloses abuse to our instructors a series of aftercare networking processes begin. Somewhere along that journey clients are informed of our SASA meetings and invited to attend.
SASA is the NMNW â€˜aftercareâ€™ program for assault survivors. It is free, it is long term and it works. The program follows the Alcoholics Anonymous 12 step path to recovery. We chose this program because it provides much more structure than a general â€˜support groupâ€™, it provides an organized spiritual path to recovery. We have found that SASA is very effective in helping to heal the shame, grief and self-destructive behaviors that often plague the survivor.
