Who we are

Edmonton Society Against Mind Abuse

ESAMA started operation in 1976 as an organization of volunteers under the name Alberta Cult Education. They had no official status until 1985 when they became a registered charitable society known as the Edmonton Society Against Mind Abuse 1985 (ESAMA).

The Edmonton Society Against Mind Abuse is a non-profit Society. ESAMA operates with the funds received through Alberta Gaining and Liquor Commission through casino funding, fund raising events, grants, and donations from concerned individuals and companies. Your donation of any size supports ESAMA in changing lives. ESAMA is registered under the income tax act as a charity. Our registration number is 88990 5949 RR0001.

ESAMA has two part time Outreach workers who are providing services to Edmonton and other areas. Three groups meetings are being held: a group for parents who have sons or daughters involved in high demand/cultic groups, an ex-members group, and a women’s group for women who have left situations of mind control/co-dependency and continue to be vulnerable by falling into similar relationships.
