Treatment for the Addict

Whether you have realized that your sexual and/or relational behavior is out of control or someone else is telling you that it is a problem, we can help.  After a thorough assessment, we will provide you with an individualized treatment plan to create and maintain healthy changes.  In our comprehensive treatment program, we offer individual therapy, couples therapy, and the following group processes to support the work of recovery from sex addiction.

Men’s Recovery Group

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:

  • Group of MenDeveloping 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 life.

Men’s Monthly Group

The Monthly Group is designed to provide support and guidance as sex addicts who have created successful  sobriety and recovery transition from weekly involvement in the Willow Tree Counseling recovery program to maintaining their successful sobriety and recovery within the community at large.  This group meets monthly and members take on increased responsibility for the content and leadership of the group.  In order to join the Men’s Monthly Group, individuals must meet the following criteria:
