Seen as the most effective form of treatment for all addictive disorders, group therapy in our programs is one of the most profound experiences for our clients. The first time you realize you are not alone – that others have experienced what you have experienced – you will have a great sense of relief. The bonding that occurs in the group setting is a micro-world of what it will be like to have healthy bonding in the real (macro) world. Guided by experienced therapists, the behaviors you learn in the group will transfer to the behaviors you practice at home and at work.
Group treatment in our centers is directive and interactive. Groups are facilitated by one of our sexual addiction / intimacy disorder 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.
