Raped by a 12-step member by
I was raped by a member in the 12-step program who I considered my friend. I was also in the program so it was a huge violation of trust. When I reported I was not believed. I was also an international student at that time so it was very hard for me to do the legal things. I couldn’t continue working with my mentor at college, which made it harder for me to get accepted to doctoral programs. It shattered my life at that time. The person denied and lied to our common friends.
