Group Treatment for Addicts
Seen as the most effective form of treatment for all addictive disorders, group treatment at the Sexual Recovery Institute (SRI) is available to most clients who have successfully completed their first 6 to 8 weeks of individual treatment or a two-week intensive.
Group treatment at SRI is directive and interactive. The group is facilitated by one of our sexual addiction specialists whose goal it is to maintain a group consciousness of sexual sobriety, accountability and personal integrity. Against a background of these themes, group members discuss their sexual, relational and life concerns using the facilitator and group members as a sounding board toward growth and healthy interdependence.
Group work consists of weekly two-hour sessions with a therapist and up to seven other consistent group members. The minimum requirement for attendance in the group is six months, though many clients attend the group for as long as two years or more, finding there the ongoing fellowship and support necessary for long-term recovery from sexual addiction.
