For some people entering recovery, a focused, multi-day intensive will be the best option for creating long-term sobriety.  Intensives are held on a Saturday and Sunday from 9 am to 5 pm in our Chicago offices.  Each intensive is facilitated by a certified sex addiction therapist (CSAT) and is individually designed to meet your specific needs.  In addition your intensive will provide education about your sex addiction including:

  • The neuroscience behind addiction
  • Your personal trauma history
  • The addictive cycle, including obsessions and rituals
  • Family-of-origin
  • Addiction interactions
  • Sex addiction as an intimacy disorder
  • Sobriety and which behaviors trigger relapse
  • Preventing relapse
  • The 12 steps and why they are necessary
  • How denial manifests to support the addictive behavior

Clients consistently report their intensive was one of the best investments they have made in therapy. It is a way of combining six months of work into one concentrated experience.

Contact CCSW to schedule your 16 hour individual intensive experience.
