Men’s Sexual Compulsivity Group

Many men have found themselves in the trap of sexual compulsivity. The toll of sexual addiction for the individual, spouse and family often leads to arguments, depression, separation, divorce, loss of income, and even legal problems. Many men have tried to stop their damaging sexual behaviors, on their own, or through an untrained therapist, without success. Broken promises to themselves and their spouse/partner is the norm. The shame of not being able to stop addictive sexual acting-out behaviors often leads the addict to blame their spouse/partner, job, and other situations for their behaviors.

Sexual addiction is painful. It’s difficult to admit to, let alone talk about with another. This often causes the addict to withdraw and isolate. Anger, depression and anxiety develop, and to relieve the pain the addict returns to acting out.

In the Men’s Sexual Compulsivity group, you’ll be with others who are caught in the same trap, mostly men who are bright and highly successful in their careers. You’ll be able to talk about your addiction without shame or ridicule, and gain the support and information necessary to overcome the addictive process.

In the Men’s Sexual Compulsivity Recovery Group you’ll be given the tools to stop compulsive behavior and to begin the healing process under the guidance of a highly trained Sex Addiction Therapist.

Defining sexual addiction/compulsivity and sexual offending

Co-addiction/Codependency – What part do spouses/partners play in an addiction problem?

Dealing with betrayal, broken trust and grief

Setting boundaries and non-negotiable behaviors
