Have your shame, secrets, and sexually compulsive behaviors led to personal or relational devastation? Are you ready to rise up and begin rebuilding your life? If so, let me be your guide. I have extensive experience guiding individuals and couples in crisis through the recovery process and I am ready to help you as well. I know how intimidating it is to begin this journey because I was once there myself. I also know that recovery from sexual addiction is worth the effort. Healing is possible. There is hope.
You are an individual with a unique addiction story and your recovery experience should also be unique, based on your wounds, needs, behavior, and current situation. Maybe you’ve experienced an addiction that is rooted in trauma or maybe you weren’t traumatized but continue to act out compulsively. Maybe a faith-based program is a high priority for you or maybe you’d prefer an approach that is not spiritually-focused. Maybe you’re single or maybe you’re on the verge of separation, feeling lost with how to care for your traumatized partner. Maybe you’re addicted to pornography or maybe you’ve escalated into more self-destructive behavior. All of these unique experiences are important, thus the Life After Lust Program is customized for you. After your initial assessment with Forest Benedict, he will create a unique recovery plan for you, based on his years of recovery experience and expertise in the field of sexual addiction treatment.
The Life After Lust program is fully online and available to adults residing in California (here is a resource available worldwide). The program is available for female and male sex and pornography addicts (separately). It is a one year experience that includes weekly therapy groups, personal challenges, experiential exercises, and structure that supports long-term recovery. Topics that will be addressed in the program include the neuroscience of addiction and recovery, shame, lust, fantasy, rebuilding trust, and connection. Life After Lust and other top-notch resources will be utilized in the program.
