Men's Sexual Health Group Therapy
One of the earliest casualties from substance use will be relational intimacy.
People who abuse mood altering substances are unable to maintain healthy relationships with their partner, family, friends, and co-workers. As an individual’s addiction progresses it will completely take over their life and they are unable to continue in healthy relationships.
A sexual health group designed specifically for men.
The Men’s Sexual Health Group consists of a group of roughly 6-10 clients. While group members are a valuable source of support, formal group therapy sessions offer benefits beyond informal self-help and support groups. Group therapy sessions are led by a Certified Sex Addiction Therapist and Clinical Sexologist (c) with specialized training, who will teach group members proven strategies for managing specific problems.
Join us Thursday Nights from 6:00-8:00pm.
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.
Intimacy disorders come in many forms, including relationship breakdown, relationship addiction, sex addiction, and sexual anorexia. Men who struggle with underlying emotional or psychological problems often stemming from early life abuse such as physical or sexual trauma or emotional neglect. Most of the individuals appear to have various forms of early trauma and attachment challenges over which drugs mixed with sexuality provide a sense of emotional control.
