Sexual Addiction and Compulsivity
is a progressive disease that consumes lives, demolishes
relationships, and robs addicts and their partners of self-respect
and wholeness. It is also a family disease. In recovery people
recognize that both partners have been part of the problem and both
contribute to the recovery process, individually and together.
Couples who work through individual issues and develop better and
healthier relationship and intimacy skills do well in recovery.
This workshop is designed to promote change in the
lives of sexually addicted men and their partners and to assist
couples seeking a path of growth and healing. This workshop allows
couples to explore the cycles of addiction and codependence and
helps couples to understand the dynamics of their relationship prior
to recovery and guides them toward making healthy changes for
continued growth. It includes tools for recovery of emotional,
spiritual, and sexual wholeness.
Who Will Benefit from this Workshop
Those who will benefit from this workshop include
couples relatively new to recovery and those who have been in
recovery for a while, and are ready to move forward on their path of
growth and healing. Couples may have completed much
individual work, but wish to begin the work of relationship healing.
Couples who have negotiated the initial stages of recovery can
strengthen previously acquired skills to develop an even healthier
relationship and greater intimacy. All couples benefit by reducing
the anger, fear, and lack of trust threatening their relationship
recovery. The workshop is not appropriate in the very early
stare of recovery or where some degree of sobriety has not been
achieved by the addict.
