Many men who struggle with sex addiction share similarities: poorly developed personal relationships and a disconnection from their feelings. Male sex addicts often confuse or substitute sexual acting out with emotional intimacy. Furthermore, they are often not connected to a social group in which they can explore and develop safe and healthy male-to-male relationships. In this group, the men grow and heal as a result of the therapeutic interventions, the shared sense of accountability, and the transparent and supportive relationships.
Group therapy and individual therapy are among the most effective treatment modalities for sex addiction. Typically, group therapy is provided in conjunction with other therapies. Although there are similarities, group therapy is not the same as a 12-Step group.
This men's therapy group kicks off on February 20th and runs for 12 weeks, facilitated by Robert Schnitzius LMFT, CSAT (Certified Sex Addicgtion Therapist). The group is for men who are struggling with Sexual Addiction or Sexual Compulsivity, including cybersex/internet porn addiction and romance addictions. This sex addiction group therapy provides a safe and effective place for men to address the multi-layered aspects of their addiction: relationships, family, work, friends, self-esteem, finances, etc.
