Getting out of an abusive relationship can be hard and even dangerous.  There is help available, however, none of the resources listed here replace the help of a qualified psychotherapist.  Most do not advertise help with RTS (Religious Trauma Syndrome, yes its a thing), however any solid therapist is trained to recognize abuse and trauma.


Warning Signs:  Am I in a cult?/Am I a cult leader?

Journey Free:  Online RTS support group

Recovering From Religion This website has a wealth of resources, including a Hotline and Live Chat, when you need to talk to someone who understands RIGHT NOW.
