We are survivors for survivors.
You did it. You survived. You’re trying to get your life back on track, but you feel alone. You feel misunderstood. Your abuser’s voice echoes in your mind. Survivor sisters and brothers, you are not alone. Your BTSADV family is here for you every step of the way.
JOIN THE RIGHT COMMUNITY FOR YOU
WE CONNECT SURVIVORS FROM ALL WALKS OF LIFE
We have numerous programs created for our Survivor Sisters. Connect with women around the world.
We work to support our Survivor Brothers and are constantly growing our Brother network.
We support the unique challenges that our LGBTQ+ survivor community faces.
Need someone to talk to?
Our helpline is available to all survivors that would like to speak with a Survivor Sister or Survivor Brother. The BTSADV Helpline is available every day from 8 am to 5 pm PST at 1-855-287-1777. Our helpline IS NOT a crisis hotline. If it is an emergency, please contact the National Domestic Violence Hotline at 1-800-787-3224 or call 9-1-1.

He even threatened to call the police and tell them I went crazy – again.
