Evaluation & Assessment

An assessment is conducted by one of our trained therapists to identify immediate problematic sexual behaviors.  The assessment includes an integrative biopsychosocial interview in conjunction with psychological testing which requires 2-4 hours to complete. Upon the outcome of the assessment, you will be given recommendations that may include admission into the STAR program and/or referrals to outside resources.

Individual Treatment

For Addicts:

Involves meeting one-on-one with a therapist where issues and concerns related to out of control sexual behaviors are explored.  Treatment modalities include: addiction, trauma, and cognitive-behavioral. Central to your therapy will be to address the cycle of addiction, distorted thinking, relapse prevention, triggers, and consequences that impede healthy decision-making. Underlying causes, prior traumas, and losses often rooted in early primary relationships are explored throughout the therapy experience.

For Partners of Addicts:

Involves meeting one-on-one with a therapist to address acute crisis concerns following the discovery/disclosure of chronic sexual infidelity by your partner. Treatment modalities include: addiction, trauma, and cognitive-behavioral. Primary focus of therapy is addressing non-negotiables for immediate safety concerns, self-care, and development of a support system where exploration and validation of your experiences can occur. Once crisis from addiction is resolved, ongoing treatment centers on maladaptive coping skills, also referred to as codependency, that interfere with self-care and healthy interpersonal relationships. Underlying causes, prior traumas, and losses often rooted in early primary relationships are explored throughout the therapy experience.
