Treatment for the Couple

We believe it is important to address the needs of the couple during treatment.  Initially couples work focuses on supporting and guiding the couple as they learn about sex addiction and work on their recovery.  In time couples work shifts its from healing from the addiction toward the creation of the nurturing and fulfilling relationship you and your partner desire.  In addition to couples therapy, we offer a number of treatment services for the couple.
