Why Group Therapy?

Group therapy has become recognized as an essential component of sexual addiction recovery by most experts in the field. Dr. Patrick Carnes has said that “group therapy is cutting edge treatment for sexual addiction.” Individual therapy, couples counseling, and 12-step fellowships all have their benefits, but group therapy is a unique opportunity for men to experience tremendous growth by taking advantage of the power of relationships.

Sexual addiction is considered an intimacy disorder. This means most men who struggle with compulsive sexual behaviors also find it difficult to be honest and transparent in their relationships. Feelings of shame and guilt often drive these men into isolation, where they develop a secret life. Many of them get quite skilled at hiding their true selves. This is where group therapy can be helpful, as it provides an environment where they can break through isolation, eliminate secrecy, and move from deception to authenticity.

Many sexually addicted men avoid authentic, honest relationships. Yet, the need for such intimate connection and transparency is essential to a life of recovery.

About This Therapy Group

This men’s therapy group is designed for men who want to reduce or eliminate their unwanted problematic sexual behaviors. These behaviors may include viewing pornography, masturbation, anonymous sexual hook-ups, visiting erotic massage parlors, strip clubs, or prostitution. In essence, any sexual behavior that you would like to stop, can be addressed in this group.

This group content is based on the latest research in the field of sexual addiction recovery and combines in-person, interactive education; self-paced homework; and supportive group interaction to help each participant thrive in their recovery. There is no need to suffer alone, help is available.

This program will provide the participant the tools to:

  • Break addictive patterns that include unwanted sexual behaviors.
  • Define and maintain sexual sobriety.
  • Create an effective and sustainable recovery that will help you achieve the life you want.
  • Reduce dishonesty, increase integrity, and live according to your values.
  • Effectively identify, regulate, and express your emotions.
  • Identify and manage your triggers.
  • Move out of isolation and learn to build intimacy with others.
  • Reduce shame and guilt.
  • Build self-esteem and start to believe in yourself again.

This program is not:

  • For someone who is not willing to work at their recovery.

When do we meet:

  • This group meets from 6pm to 8pm two evenings per month, usually the 1st & 3rd Tuesday of the month (the exact schedule will be disclosed in advance). This is an “in person” meeting and therefore no virtual options will be available.
