Treatment of Sex Addiction

Addictions are difficult to stop without help. Sex addiction, like all addiction, becomes a habit and a process that your brain starts to “need,” and seek out. Quitting “cold turkey” without any therapy or assistance can be an intense struggle, and very few sex addicts are able to break the cycle on their own.

Luckily, if you’re struggling with sex addiction, treatment is available. There are several options for those that have a sex addiction, including Recovery Support Group programs.

What’s Involved in a Sex Addiction Treatment Group?

One of the biggest challenges facing those with sex addiction is feeling understood. Sex addiction is a real disorder that is often vilified by those that struggle to understand it, which causes those struggling with the addiction to feel alone in their attempt at recovery.

At Innovative Counselling Solutions, we understand your struggle. That is why we have created a sex addiction Recovery Support Group – a small, personal, and confidential group of those that are struggling with similar addictions to help support each other on the way to recovery.

Benefits of Recovery in a Sex Addiction Support Group Therapy Setting

Support Group therapy provides several advantages to those that need help with sex addiction recovery. Each session will include your trained sex addiction therapist, along with a maximum of 7 other men, each one supporting each other to help them recover from the addiction. Sex addiction recovery support groups have many benefits for those that need help with overcoming their addiction, including:

  • Surrounded by Peers – It’s much easier to realize you’re not alone in your recovery when you’re surrounded by others that are also hoping to recover from their own addictions. You’ll have the support of those around you, and you’ll never feel like your addiction isn’t real.
  • First Person Support – Though your sex addiction therapist will provide guidance, it’s also helpful to have first person experience throughout your recovery – helpful tips and stories from those that have also tried to recover, experienced slips, and tried their best to overcome them.
  • Accountability – Every week you’ll be meeting with others that know you, and want to see your recovery. You’ll feel an obligation to make sure that you can tell them positive news, and you’ll have people that are hoping and encouraging you towards a successful recovery.

Our sex addiction recovery group therapy sessions are small, supportive groups, led by trained sex addiction therapists, with many years of experience working with those struggling with all types of sex addiction. We’re creating groups that benefit men just like you, with judgment-free environments that are committed to your recovery.

Recovery Support Group Schedule

Our Recovery Support Group program begins with a prescreening interview followed by a 12-week group session that meets for two hours per week. The group meetings involve a safe therapeutic and confidential setting under the guidance of a certified sex addiction therapist who will teach you skills and tasks to help you get your life back on track.

Group therapy is a proven effective way to overcome the many challenges associated with sex addiction, with benefits that make it possible to see real success in both your short and long term recovery. It provides an opportunity to meet other people who share similar sexual problems providing you with a wider perspective of your own sexual problems. Listening to and empathizing with others can assist in helping you understand that you too can handle problems when life is difficult. Feedback, emotional support, and encouragement from group members provides a renewed perspective that there are several ways to handle your sexual problems and that you are not alone in your struggles.
