    SA recovery is more successful when you participate in a group that helps you through the process. If you are thinking that a group sounds scary, you are not alone. Most guys think this at the beginning. But like most scary things, it gets better and, in fact, becomes a valued part of your recovery experience.

    The Men On the Journey group will address the following issues and more:

    • What is needed to maintain sexual sobriety

    • Addiction interaction factors

    • How sharing with others supports recovery

    • How to empathize with your partner

    • Finding acceptance and hope for the future

    • And much more.


    Groups are safe places for deeper exploration, shame reduction, and strengthening recovery.

You will learn how to deal with emotions connected to less than nurturing events, and begin the process of resolving past hurts that have kept you stuck in unproductive and destructive patterns (depression, anxiety, addictions, eating disorders and painful relationships). The focus is not on blaming caregivers, but rather healing the trauma of any past events impacting adult life.

    If you want deep and lasting transformation — change at the core — going back to your roots [family of origin] is the place to start.

    The truth is that most of us carry painful and unresolved childhood wounds into adulthood. These wounds remain unhealed, wreaking havoc on our lives, our relationships and even our children, until we “dig at the roots." Family of origin work will kickstart your healing process, break through blocks in your recovery, or fill in the missing piece that’s been holding you back.

    You will release and heal childhood wounds so that you can step into the life you’re meant to live — unburdened by what is unexamined and unresolved in your past.
