FOR THE ADDICT/SEXUAL COMPULSIVE
The focus of the work is to enable clients to regain control over their thoughts and behaviors, releasing them from the prison of “acting out” toward experiencing freedom, peace and joy in their lives. Clients reclaim their relationships with their families as well as with themselves. Clients do not need to self-identify as a “sex addict” to seek and receive help and relief from the compulsive need to act on obsessive thoughts.
Why do this work?
Research indicates long-term recovery from sexual addiction increases dramatically with therapy and 12-step program attendance. Our practice utilizes the task-oriented program developed by Patrick Carnes, Ph.D. This program is designed to arrest acting out behavior and progression of the disease. In treatment clients experience emotional and spiritual healing as they reclaim integrity by becoming honest, developing self-awareness and understand the meaning of their behavior.
Our clinicians are specially trained in the field of Sexual Addiction. We utilize the following modalities in treatment:
- Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy and psychoeducation
- Individual Therapy
- Group Therapy
- Couples/Marital Therapy
- Family Therapy
