Task Groups for Sex Addicts and Anorexics

Task groups are cognitive-behavioral and process oriented groups addressing denial, early recovery, and relapse prevention. Groups focus on the necessary building blocks for lasting recovery. Required is a minimum commitment of one year, attendance at two 12-Step meetings, as well as completion of Beginnings and Recovery Start.Goals of this group are: (a) identification of warning signs and triggers; (b) abstinence from bottom-line behaviors, growing capacity to manage stressful situations that used to trigger acting-out behaviors; and (c) contribution to the group process where relationship skill building is practiced and intimacy begins to be tolerated, often for the first time.
