6 Day Residential Recovery Course

This programme is “life changing”, according to the many men who have completed it. “The best decision I have ever made in my life” said another attendee, “enlightening” and “immensely practical” said others.

Our residential recovery programme for sex and pornography addiction has been designed to get you away from your usual environment and focus all your attention on overcoming addictive porn use and/or compulsive sexual behaviours. The course is unique in providing practical skills for recovery as well as exploring deeper emotional and psychological needs and provides the equivalent of 56 hours therapy. It also provides an environment that overcomes the shame, isolation and secrecy that often maintain addiction and provides an intense, fast-track into recovery. For more about outcomes, do look at the bottom of this page. You can download further testimonials here and also read about one of our clients’ personal experience of the 6-Day Recovery Course on our blog.

The programme is delivered from our Central office in Leamington Spa which is 1.5 hours from London, and 20 minutes from Birmingham Airport.

By the end of the course attendees will be able to:

  • Understand the biological and psychological causes of their addiction
  • Recognise and manage triggers
  • Establish relapse prevention strategies to secure and maintain recovery
  • Identify and overcome potential future blocks to recovery
  • Develop long term strategies for re-establishing personal integrity and a healthy lifestyle

The course is strictly limited to a maximum of 8 men and all attendees are required to sign a confidentiality statement to ensure the group is a safe space for all.  The group is facilitated by two associates who are specifically trained in sex and pornography addiction.  Attendees will be invited to join one of our aftercare groups on completion.

The cost includes bed and breakfast for 5 nights, lunch, refreshments and all treatment materials, a personalised aftercare plan and a follow up day 3 month after the end of the course.
