A Free 8 Step Program For Recovery From Online Fraud
The Romance Scams Now™ Road Map To Recovery For Scam Victims.
Note: This is not a medically approved program, but an emotional support program intended for educational purposes only. Please read the disclaimer at the end.
This program was designed by the staff of Romance Scams Now based upon our 25 years of experience as a self-help program to assist in the recovery process for those that do not have other means or resources available to them, or for those that are not ready to take the first step to seeking counseling or therapy.
After the trauma of being scammed, you need to take steps to recover and move on. This may be an alternative in the short-term, but we still encourage you to seek out professional help.
Where Did This Come From:
We have patterned our program after the very successful Alcoholics Anonymous 12 step program.
Alcoholics Anonymous members often talk about "working the steps." During this process, members of the AA group move through each of the steps to achieve sobriety and recovery.
In AA, participants are encouraged to pair up with a sponsor to work through the steps. The sponsor is a member who is further along in the program and acts as a guide through the steps for newer members. Sponsors provide individual care and support throughout recovery, even making themselves available outside meetings via phone. In the face of potential relapse, a person can call his or her sponsor.
In the RSN Steps Program, we do not have Sponsors, however, participants are support through our online social media support groups on Facebook by the peer members of these groups. Group members may, at their option (though it is not encouraged) connect personally with each other to offer greater support. Though we do recommend that scam victims also seek health professional counseling to better assess their needs and develop a professional mental and physical health program.
This is certainly a really STRONG program. I am sure that it will help to start a recovery for a person who is lost in the throws of understanding the scam he/she is involved in.
I have written a book called ‘Love on the Line’ and through that experience of writing out my story, learning to understand the relationships between the world we live in and the scamming phenomena and believing in that we now can re-create our own ‘happy ending’ with no blame or self-beating involved, we can start the long recovery process. I think that it is a lot about forgiving yourself also.[Click Here for the book]
Thank you for the program. I will share it around, Warmly
