Many of the emails we get here at No Longer Quivering involve asking for help, either asking for help dealing with the fall out of leaving an abusive cult-like situation or asking for advice or help to get someone else out. Because of the flood of emails coming in asking for help it’s time we put together a page with resources and help links.
Listed below is a list of helpful sites/services. What I’d like to do is ask everyone that knows of something not listed below to add it into the comments so we can compile that resource page. The more knowledge, the easier it will be for those trying to recover from spiritual abuse to get that help so they can move forward into a healthier life.
