Grounded in Patrick Carnes’ recovery model, Men’s Sexual Recovery addresses sexual obsession and compulsive behaviors. Men are often hesitant to discuss sexual feelings and experiences. Consequently, they carry burdens of shame and painful memories of unresolved sexual experiences or uncontrolled sexual behaviors. When appropriately managed, sexual drive can be a positive and productive life force that compels us to form relationships that inspire us to live better lives. This inner drive is explored—with compassion, humor, and zest for life—as participants are reminded that sex can be enjoyable, fulfilling, and deeply meaningful.

This workshop helps to lift the shame and resolve sexual dilemmas and self-destructive behaviors. It broadens many participants’ views about sexuality, as they learn how to have productive experiences, maintain positive relationships, and avoid the harmful patterns of the past. The workshop is best for those who want to:

  • Jump-start their recovery process
  • Prevent relapse
  • Acquire tools to support continued recovery


$3,450 – All-inclusive are meals and evening activities: Yoga, Tai Chi, Auricular Acupuncture, Live Music, and 12-step meeting. Access to the Brain Spa and gym are also included in the cost of the workshop.
