"Thanks for Sharing" as an Educational Tool

Explaining Sex Addiction to Friends and Family

One of the hardest things about being a sex addict in recovery is explaining to friends and family what sex addiction really is, and what trying to recover from it is really like. Frankly, most people either think sex addiction would be a really fun addiction to have, or they think that people suffering from it are either making it up or using it as excuse for bad behavior. If you're in sexual recovery, of course, you know different. Sex addiction is not fun, it is not made-up, and it is not an excuse.

Thanks for Sharing is a well-written, well-acted, highly entertaining movie. It is an accurate and realistic portrayal of the trials and tribulations and joys of sex addiction recovery. It is also a film that can serve as an educational tool. Friends and family members can gain insight into what sex addiction really is in a non-threatening and entertaining way.

The next Two-Week Intensive Treatment Program begins October 21st!

The SRI Two-Week Intensive is a program of therapy and education designed to help our clients identify and eliminate all sexual acting out behavior, and to develop the skills and tools needed to prevent sexual relapse.

The Two-Week Intensive Program at SRI is a cost-effective and more time-effective alternative to the traditional 4-6 week hospital stay or residential treatment programs. It is our belief, based on our decades of experience, that most sex addicts do not require a lengthy stay in a controlled environment. Our program offers many similar benefits while minimizing the disruption in our clients' lives.
