Sex Addiction Treatment

Treatment for sexual compulsivity is a complicated and simple process.  Complicated in that there are many processes, phases, steps, and therapeutic implications of treatment.  Simple in that it's not brain surgery.  It is simple hard work which requires commitment, time, and your willingness to surrender to the process of healing and recovery. 

For questions about treatment and assessment please e-mail or call 205-202-1711.

Depending on the nature of your addiction, we use world-class treatment centers. Our primary treatment center of choice, because it has spent years of research, and has had tremendous success in the treatment of sexual compulsivity, is the Gentle Path Program at Pine Grove Treatment Center in Hattiesburg, Mississippi.  Dr. Patrick Carnes treatment modality using the 30 tasks model has had years of research and positive results for thousands of patients.  This treatment is consistent and the same modality our therapists will continue using in your recovery.

If you are a perpetrator, that is, you have performed an illegal sexual behavior on someone that has not been consensual, or a minor, we do not treat this behavior.  However, we will refer you to a treatment center in which we highly trust for your ongoing care.


It  is extremely important that you get in to see a highly trained therapist in the area of sexual addiction/compulsivity/anorexia for an assessment.  Your therapist will then be able to prescribe for you the best group experience which will meet yours and your spouses needs.

Group Therapy - There are currently on-going weekly therapeutic groups using the 30 Task treatment developed by Dr. Patrick Carnes.  You will find support, serenity, therapy, and a well-defined strategy for your  recovery.  These groups are designed to be on-going for about 160 hours of therapy over time which will help each individual gain skills, confidence, and sobriety in their personal, family, spiritual, and work life.  One of the best and proven ways of getting healthy is in the context of other people.  You will find safety and hope here.  These men's groups are led by highly trained therapists who will create a safe and yet challenging place for you to get your life back.
