Men’s Recovery Group

Starting & Maintaining Recovery from Sex Addiction

This is an on-going group for men in recovery from sexual or pornography addiction.  This group is structured so that individuals move through three phases of treatment within the group.  Typically, individuals within the same group are working on different phases of their treatment.

The initial phase of the Men’s Recovery Group helps individuals to successfully start their recovery and establish sobriety.  The initial phase focuses on

  • Developing tools to build recovery
  • Creating a sobriety plan
  • Identifying behaviors that give power to the sexual or pornography addiction
  • Identifying situations and patterns that undermine recovery

The second phase of the Men’s Recovery Group helps individuals to continue their recovery process and maintain sobriety.  The second phase focuses on

  • Providing skills and concepts to support recovery and sobriety
  • Uncovering the underlying issues that have been feeding the addiction
  • Understanding how the addiction mirrors underlying wounds
  • Developing empathy for those damaged by the addiction in preparation for making amends
  • Developing unconscious competence for sobriety

The third phase of the Men’s Recovery Group continues to develop and maintain the tools, routines, and neurological changes that support sobriety.  Members identify, address, and work to heal underlying trauma, which has been a factor in driving the addiction.  This group supports members in developing and maintaining healthy balance in all aspects of their lives.

Participants in this group will receive a homework binder, Facing the Shadow, Answers in the Heart, Disclosing Secrets, Recovery Start Kit, and Letters to a Sex Addict.
