The most proven method for treatment of any kind of addiction is conducted within the context of a group environment. The Hall Recovery Course for Sex Addiction & Porn Addiction is not group therapy where you will be expected to share personal feelings that are uncomfortable for you. It is a pragmatic, down to earth psycho-educational course that has been developed specifically for the treatment of sex addiction and sexually compulsive behaviours.
The recovery course is unique in providing practical skills for treatment as well as creating an environment where deeper psychological and emotional needs can begin to be explored.
The Hall Recovery Course is available as either a 12 week recovery course or a 6 day intensive recovery course. Weekly programmes run one evening a week and are available at a number of locations around the UK and our Intensives are run in Warwickshire. The Intensive programme is particularly suitable for people who are time-pressured and are looking for a fast-track into recovery. Our 8 week online course is tailored specifically to those struggling with compulsive pornography use and is delivered via Zoom video conferencing. All attendees on our recovery courses will be invited to join one of our monthly aftercare support groups.
Although the prospect of joining a group terrifies most people initially, it often proves to be the single most significant step towards life-long recovery. The reason that the group environment is so important is that it breaks through the feelings of shame and isolation that so often continue the cycle of addiction. It also provides treatment and accountability and an opportunity to rebuild self esteem and close friendships that have so often been wrecked by addiction.
Most partners are devastated to discover their partner is addicted to sex and/or pornography and many find it difficult to believe it’s even true. Others may have been battling for years to discover the truth and may feel relieved when the truth is finally out.
Partners need their own space to recover from the trauma of discovery and someone who understands the problem who can help them to decide what their future will hold. We can provide individual support with one of our associates either face to face or online. Additionally we offer a sex addiction and porn addiction support group programme which can be especially beneficial to break through the feelings of isolation and provide long term friendship and understanding that can often be so hard to find.
Our support group programmes are available either as an 8 week programme or a 4 day intensive. Our programmes are designed to complement those provided for addiction recovery, but focuses on helping partners to move on from the devastation of sex addiction, whether that’s as a couple, or alone.
