Men’s Recovery Program for Compulsive Sexual Behavior

                                                       

It is no secret that our culture has become increasingly obsessed with sex. It is inescapable. It is plastered throughout magazines, on billboards, on the internet, in books, on TV — just about everywhere you look. While many people felt that a more unrestricted approach to sexuality would liberate people, it actually has led to bondage for many. An alarming number of men and women have experienced painful consequences and find they are unable to stop sexual behaviors that are destroying them emotionally, vocationally, relationally, and spiritually.

 

 

In response, Meier Clinics provides a road to wholeness from the bondage of sexual addiction through our Pathway to Freedom Intensive Outpatient Program and Facing the Shadow Men’s Group. Both programs incorporate concepts/materials developed by Dr. Patrick J. Carnes (the leading authority in the world on sexual addiction). The primary program therapist is a Certified Sex Addiction Therapist (CSAT). The CSAT certification is an intense and rigorous process (founded and developed by Dr. Patrick Carnes) and is recognized as the premier training/certification program today. Meier Clinics’ staff approaches treatment from a Christian world view and integrate biblical principles in all phases of treatment.  They will guide those struggling with sexual addiction to find renewed hope, health, and freedom. New sessions start on an ongoing basis throughout theyear.

Program Description

The Pathway to Freedom Intensive Outpatient Program for sexual addiction is a program of intensive psychoeducation and group psychotherapy designed to focus on recovery from compulsive sexual behavior. The core curriculum used is the Recovery Start Kit (RSK) created by Dr. Patrick Carnes. The first 130 days of recovery is the focus, as research shows that a solid foundation of information, structure, and accountability is crucial to long-term success. Pathway to Freedom is appropriate for men who are experiencing

(1) a current crisis related to sexual acting out,

(2) an acute escalation of addictive sexual behaviors,

(3) a chronic relapse -  continuing out-of-control behaviors despite therapy or 12-step work, or

(4) those who have been discharged from a treatment center. 

 

The Pathway to Freedom program incorporates one-on-one counseling, group sessions, and family involvement to provide superior treatment care.

 

This program is currently available in Richardson, TX.  If you are interested in registering for this program or would like a free phone assessment to see if this program is suitable for your needs, please call 972-437-4698 and select Option 5.  Our professionally trained, Christian counseling team is ready to walk with you on your pathway to health and freedom from sexual bondage!
