Recovery Start Intensives - Healing from Sexual Addiction
The Recovery Start Intensives are 5-day intensives designed to build or restore a strong foundation for your recovery from sex, porn and love addictions. During this time you will be assessed for the best treatment plan for you, you will receive individual therapy, education and well thought-out support and an after-care plan to continue your work, once the intensive is complete.
As part of the intensive you will be focusing on several areas of learning and insight:
- Breaking through denial; recognizing the "addict mind"
- Establishing sobriety
- Learning how addiction affects our brains and neuropathways
- Building a personal toolbox to prevent relapse
- Understanding how change occurs
- Influence of family of origin
- Insight into origination of the addiction
Additionally, you will work on a new vision for your life, sexuality and relationships.

Complicated Relationships Intensive Workshop for Women
The purpose of this workshop is to facilitate understanding and healing in a safe place with other women on a similar journey. Throughout the four day process of education and experiential work, we will explore how we may have arrived in a place from which we experience complication and pain in relationships. Our relational challenges may arise from our partner's painful addictive behavior or we may be experiencing painful patterns ourselves. We will acknowledge and identify what it looks and feels like to be here, in this painful place. With this understanding, we will focus and develop a plan of healing for how we might transform our futures.The next workshop will be held at our downtown office from
Thursday September 20th - Sunday September 23rd
Thursday & Friday from 4-8, Saturday 9-5, and Sunday 10-4
