Does a Sex Addiction Group Help?
Yes! Talking with a professional counselor trained and passionate about helping men break free from sexual addiction can help you identify the root(s) and the destructive cycle of an addiction. Hearing from other men who struggle with similar issues helps us feel validated that we are not alone. And the practical Tasks in the workbooks give us a solid, effective framework that boosts our growth and gives us hope!
Feeling like you have control over your life again can be the greatest freedom! Don’t wait another week just to be stuck in the same destructive cycle.
Weekly Men’s Sexual Addiction Recovery Group
Starting Saturday, January 5th. Please call 980-263-9608 for more information.
“Facing the Shadow”
Join a few other men to work through the very helpful, detailed and evidence-supported workbook “Facing the Shadow” (3rd Ed.) by Dr. Patrick Carnes, a prominent expert who developed ground-breaking recovery programs in the field of sex addiction. Much more than a support group, this therapy group is led by a master’s level licensed counselor who is also a trained sexual addiction therapist. The process and workbook include structured exercises (Tasks 1-7) that can be put into practice immediately to help participants regain control of their lives and begin enjoying their work and relationships.
What Happens After the 13-Week Group?
Once completing the first group, additional support will be needed to stay on track and continue to strengthen all aspects of our being. Men choosing to continue their journey toward health and self-understanding can renew for another 13-week group as we dive deeper into content beyond Facing the Shadow and review and support the Tasks and Performables in the workbook.
Subsequent groups will be available immediately following the Facing the Shadow group to continue to strengthen men’s integrity, relationships, health and balance. We’re serious about getting health in ALL areas of our lives!
So, after the group is ready to move from Facing the Shadow workbook, we will then continue the process using two additional workbooks: Recovery Zone: Volume 1 and Recovery Zone: Volume 2. These workbooks address Tasks 8-13 and Tasks 14-19 and will act as our guidebook. There is enough material for us to learn, apply and process that can allow us to stay connected and grow. Participants highly appreciate the structured tasks and framework that the workbooks and group process provides.
Before the First Group Meeting
Please purchase the “Facing the Shadow” (3rd Edition) workbook by Dr. Patrick Carnes prior to our first group session. This workbook is available on Amazon.com. You can also purchase it from me at the same price.
You will also need to email David to schedule a 50-minute individual session to meet him (the group facilitator), learn about the group’s content and process, discuss your strengths and struggles and receive personal feedback and recommendations for your recovery plan.
