For Partners

Partners are deeply impacted by the behaviors of the addiction, and specifically their spouse’s betrayal(s) of their trust.  They feel embarrassed and distressed by the behaviors, and find very few if any people they can confide in about their pain.  The focus of the group is to explore the impact sex addiction has on partners.  Through a structured and safe environment partners come together with others in similar circumstances to seek answers and support for their concerns about sex addiction and coping strategies that may have unwittingly allowed the addiction to thrive are explored by drawing attention away from the addict and onto the partner’s internal world.  Developing and maintaining a support network that includes 12-Step meeting is expected.  A minimum of a one year commitment is needed to enter the ongoing group.
