Intensive Outpatient Treatment of Sex Addiction
At times, addictive behavior may initially require more than traditional outpatient treatment and 12 Step support. For individuals or couples who may require a more comprehensive initial treatment experience, Dr. Dec and Associates offer individualized intensive outpatient programs for the treatment of the following:

  • Sex Addiction
  • Love Addiction
  • Partners experiencing pain of discovery
  • Couples experiencing difficult early recovery

Our intensive programs are designed to be initial outpatient treatment experiences tailored to the intensity required to address the specific presenting challenges of the participant in providing a catalyst in recovery. Multiple and extended weekly treatment contacts are available.

Following a thorough assessment, a comprehensive treatment plan is developed to include an intensive treatment experience conducted by multiple Certified Sex Addiction Therapists (CSAT) within our practice. This approach maximizes initial treatment and can provide an escalated experience of sobriety and recovery.  

We respect life responsibilities, and are as flexible as possible when scheduling the intensive hours around the participant’s schedule. Participants have the added benefit of therapy groups specific to their need to provide further support. We collaborate with other local treatment providers to ensure all needs are being addressed. To reduce out-of-pocket expenses, we assist each participant in utilizing his or her insurance benefits to maximize coverage. At the conclusion of each completed intensive experience, participants report feeling more confident in early recovery, having a foundation of sobriety as well as a useful tool-kit to maintain and build a meaningful recovery through continuation of supportive recovery treatment and 12 Step involvement.

Following a thorough assessment, each intensive program is tailored to the specific needs of the addicted individual.  Areas of focus may include, but are not limited to:

  • What is Real? Breaking Through Denial
  • Defining Sobriety
  • Understanding the Addictive System
  • Addiction as Brain Disorder 
  • Cybersex Issues
  • Review History of the Addiction
  • Accepting the Illness
  • Implementing a Supportive 12 Step Program
  • 1st Step Preparation
  • Understanding Addiction Interaction Disorder
  • Couple, Family, and Family of Origin Relationship Patterns
  • Grief & Trauma
  • Managing Chaos: Personal Craziness Index (PCI)
  • Relapse Prevention Planning
  • Recovery Program Planning
