One of the best things you can do for yourself when battling sexual addiction is to join a support group. Research shows that people who engage in the following 5 practices have the best chances of recovery from sexual addiction:
- Individual Therapy
- Group Therapy
- 12-Step Meeting attendance
- Working the 12 steps
- Couples Therapy (where appropriate)
If you or someone you know struggles with sex addiction, group therapy is a critical element in dissolving the shame that accompanies this addiction. When you sit with people who understand your story, empathize with you, and have walked in your shoes, so-to-speak, the shame of addiction begins to dissipate and recovery can begin.
In our new support group, we’ll take 10 weeks to walk through a series of activities to help you progress through the first 7 Tasks of recovery as defined by renowned sex addiction expert, Dr. Patrick Carnes. You’ll begin to break through denial, understand addiction and sex addiction in particular, create a support system, and much more.
If you’d like to get involved with this group, please contact me through this website, or call me directly at 816.309.5626.
