Are you wondering how to quit porn? How to stop masturbating so much or how to get rid of masturbation habit? Sex addiction can be defined as compulsive sexual behavior that creates feelings of shame, isolation and stress, and interferes with one’s life and relationships. Sexual addiction is not defined by certain sexual behaviors or even by how much sexual activity one is engaging in. Instead it is defined by the compulsive nature of the sexual behavior and the consequences resulting in one’s life.
Group sessions are an integral part of treatment, freeing people from the pain of trauma and addiction by helping patients realize that they are not alone. Group sessions allow patients to identify with their peers and gain insight on their negative choices and behaviors.
Small Group sessions encourage patients to establish relationships with other members, creating long-term friendships and improved self-awareness. Small Group sessions allow patients to learn and grow together, strengthening the healing process
At Avalon Counseling, small groups (maximum of seven members) are facilitated by a Certified Sex Addiction Therapist. In these sessions members learn to make connections with others and to rely on close, trusting relationships instead of self-destructive, addictive behavior in coping with the stress and challenges of life.
Men in the group work together toward:
- Gaining freedom from sexual obsession and compulsive behavior.
- Developing honesty with yourself and others.
- Reducing shame and regaining self-respect.
- Learning to accept, love, and laugh at ourselves.
- Examining underlying beliefs and attitudes about sex, relationships, and gender roles.
- Understanding maladaptive reactions by finding the roots in our childhood experiences.
- Overcoming social anxieties and inhibitions.
- Recognizing and reducing obstacles to intimacy — in the group, in friendships, and in romantic relationships.
- Relearning playful, healthy sexual expression.
Groups meet on Wednesday evenings in Coeur d’Alene.
The fee is $50 / week.
