Tom has struggled for the last 10 years with addictions. He has tried AA off and on and gone to support groups through his community and church. His family has been supportive and even tried to help with accountability, all to “fail” as Tom would once again “fall of the wagon” and go back to the addiction.
He was frustrated, feeling like he would never be able to get control of his addictions. Tom truly desires to get sober and free from the chains. But it’s hard and sometimes he feels like completely give up. But Tom has yet to get individual counseling and recently decided this was the next step and possibly his last hope.

Sex & Pornography Addiction
One of our specialties is working with men who struggle with addictive and compulsive sexual behaviors, including pornography. More men and women are affected by this type of addiction than ever before. The accessibility of pornography on the internet and lack of healthy decisions has a negative and destructive effect on the relationships in their lives.
In addition, our teens and tweens have been impacted due to the non-filtered internet access. As parents, we should be closely monitoring their time and access to the internet and what sites adolescents are able to view.
Through individual, group, and marital counseling, you and your spouse can find healing for this destructive addiction.
