Ryan: Tragedy of Being Sexually Abused | Road to Recovery
Last week, the brilliant Ryan reached out to me to share his story of struggling to cope but ultimately recovering from multiple instances of CSA. Ryan shares his story of being sexually abused as child, and his struggle to speak out. He turned to heroine and alcohol to numb the pain, but eventually found his road to recovery. I think it’s really important to show just how impossible life can become for survivors of CSA, and to be honest about the dangerous coping methods we can seek out for relief. We may all want to find healthy ways of coping, but sometimes damaging coping methods may be the only way we can keep surviving day to day. Ryan is honest and authentic about the lows he reached, and ultimately talks about how he pulled himself out of it. After pulling himself out, he has decided to give a helping hand over the years to others who want to find a way out of the darkness.
He wants to share his story to inspire anyone who has suffered with child abuse or a serious drug addiction, to know that you can learn to suffer less. Ryan wants to send his very best wishes to anyone on this journey, and let us know that if anyone wants to connect he’s more than happy to chat - you can reach him on:
