Facing the shadow group

A gentle path to begining recovery from sex addiction

Our Facing The Shadow group helps sex addicts move towards change and healthy behaviors. This weekly educational group is for men to navigate the challenges of recovery while following the IITAP Facing the Shadow workbook. Our group is facilitated online and is comprised of 6-10 participants. Our group is open to any clients who struggle with sex addiction. While our Men’s Sex Addiction Support Group is based on daily life circumstances, our Facing The Shadow group focuses on education helping those better understand their addiction. Both groups focus on sex addiction and are supportive environments for individuals wishing to recover. Contact us today for a free assessment to see which program is best suited to fit your needs.

Group Therapy

Being able to interact with other individuals who are learning how to cope with and overcome addiction can be extremely helpful. Addiction can be a very isolating experience and at Armour Addiction Services we give our clients ample opportunity to experience the resonance of recovery and to know they are not alone. By sharing information and personal experiences with other members of the group, our clients learn how to express themselves authentically with others in a safe, structured, and supportive environment. Within this safe container facilitated by a member of the Armour Addiction Services clinical team, clients can gain valuable feedback and begin to cultivate a deeper sense of trust, empathy, and awareness – with self and others.
