Sex Addiction Intensive in Houston

Dr. Milton Magness is offering Three-Day Intensives for Sex Addiction Recovery at Hope & Freedom Counseling Services in Houston, Texas.

Sex Addiction Los Angeles

The weekend intensives are a great way to jumpstart recovery and are also useful where people have not been successful in establishing long-term sobriety.  They are also useful when a person has experienced a slip or a relapse.

Three-Day Intensives are offered for men and also for couples.  If the client is in a committed relationship it is strongly suggested that the couple engage in the intensive process together.

Intensives include the following:

Understanding the origins of sex addiction.

  • Establishing a foundation for continued recovery.
  • Integrating recovery routines into the couple relationship.
  • Reestablishing trust in the relationship.
  • Preventing relapse.
  • Developing a personal recovery plan.

A very limited number of intensives are offered each month.  A calendar of the remaining dates available are on the Hope & Freedom website link below. For clients who are currently in therapy, Intensives are planned in consultation with the referring therapist.

For more information go to www.hopeandfreedom.com or call Dr. Magness at (713) 630-0111.

Put an end to your sexless marriage

Have you lost interest in sex in your marriage?  Do you wonder if this is “normal” or do you blame your partner?  Do you struggle with whether you should move on?  Do you dream of finding the “perfect” mate?

These are often asked questions that can silently pain individuals and keep them stuck in unhappy marriages.  Although talking about sex can be difficult, living without it can be cause shame, depression, and/or low self-esteem.  Challenging yourself to get into couples therapy and speak the unspeakable is the first step to getting “unstuck” and starting to feel alive again. Sex Therapy Los Angeles

In life, we often have to choose between the pain of staying in our misery or the pain that it takes to change.  Neither are easy but staying miserable will keep us small and stuck while the pain of change will have us growing and moving towards our full potential as human beings.
