The Weekends of Recovery (WOR) are conducted at locations throughout the United States. Venues are carefully selected with special attention to providing safe environments for positive healing experiences. Because of the high quality of facilities, the special environment setting, and the superior competency of staff – we have established a unique working relationship with each of the site locations.
The program offers a wide range of activities designed for safety and with attention for how to engage male survivors who may have a long history of isolation. Our events provide a blending of large and small group activities. Check What is WOR? for more information.
Days of Recovery are shortened versions of our longer weekend programs. We are currently offering two free DORs in Massachusetts this Spring.
MenHealing Weekends/Days of Recovery are open to any male, 18 or older, who has been sexually victimized as a child and/or assaulted or raped as an adult, or who has experiences any other form of sexual violation at any age..
We do not want cost to be a barrier for anyone to attend any of our retreats. 20 - 80% scholarship grants are available for both triple and double occupancy room selections at most Weekends of Recovery. Scholarships are considered in order of submission. Please apply NOW.

Advanced Weekend of Recovery, ONLINE EVENT August 7 - 9, 2020
Safety issues related to the COVID-19 pandemic will likely preclude us from conducting the 2020 Advanced WOR as an in-person gathering. Therefore, we are designing an on-line access for a dynamic agenda for the “Embodying Power & Love in Relationships" for on-line access.

Partners, Friends, and Families ONLINE mini-Weekend of Recovery, October 3 & 4, 2020
This Day of Recovery (DOR) is designed for anyone, 18 or older, who is a Partner, Family Member, or Friend of a male survivor.
Male survivors often do not disclose their sexual victimization until many years after they experience such a profound personal violation. Too often males are reluctant to ask for help or are apprehensive to seek mental health services. They may believe they are alone and consequently become isolated as a coping strategy. Partners, Family Members, and Friends are inevitably impacted. Registration is now open
