ALACHUA COUNTY -  The Alachua County Victim Services and Rape Crisis Center is forming a support group for adult male survivors of sexual assault. Male survivors of sexual assault suffer trauma that may take months or years to cope with.  Survivors are urged to join with others in learning how to recover and reclaim their strength.  The group will meet weekly for 10 weeks, and will encourage discussion and provide information about common reactions and strategies for coping and healing. 

For screening or for more information please call (352) 264-6764 or our hotline at 1-866-252-4539.
