In our area there is really only one good intensive trauma/ dissociation program. They do not accept our insurance. We tried to get into program yrs ago when we did have right insurance but we were put on a long waiting list then eventually denied bc our therapy treatment team was not at one of their primary hospitals or at their facility. They keep you on the,waiting list for a yr and if nothing opens up. You get taken off and denied. Priority is given to those who see drs connected to them so we just kept getting bumped down. Also we were homeless for a short time and being homeless excludes you from program criteria. Mean ppls.

Thank you @DocJohn

Over the years, I found the following helpful:

1. Book: A Fractured Mind by Robert B. Oxnam
2. Hospital: River Oaks (Trauma Center), New Orleans, LA
3. Web searches (bringing me to various websites)
4. Peer-reviewed research articles and news about research (e.g., Brand's works, Kluft's works, Lowenstein's works) - that is, when I was a student

I've not always found online support groups for DID helpful. Some were okay for a while, but then it became either retraumatizing for me or even for others from me. I suppose "hurting people hurt people" is a real thing.

For those who are struggling with finding a trauma-and-dissociation specialist, here are some helpful links to guide you in seeking a qualified therapist to diagnose and/or treat dissociative disorders:

How to find a therapist for a dissociative disorder
Written by Carolyn Spring
12 April 2020

AAMFT - Dissociative Identity Disorder

Therapy Tribe - Dissociative Identity Disorder Therapy

Good Therapy - Dissociation

Good Therapy - Get Help for Dissociation

American Psychiatric Association - What are Dissociative Disorders? (Psychiatry.org)

Mayo Clinic - Dissociative Disorders

OUTSIDE OF THE USA:

UK - Dissociation and Dissociative Disorders

UK - NHS - Dissociative Disorders

Australia - Better Health Channel - Dissociation and Dissociative Disorders

There are many more resources in Australia and around the globe, so you would need to do a search with the key words "dissociative disorder" and your specific country to find those resources.

Unfortunately, the United States lacks on resources for dissociative disorders, but you can still find some providers near or close to your region, if you can't find one locally within your state or town.
