Pornography Adolescent Treatment Group

Pleasant Grove Location:

Young Men (14 - 19 years old) – Thursdays 4:30 - 6:00pm

This adolescent treatment group has been specifically designed to assist young men who struggle with pornography and masturbation get back on track and in alignment with their beliefs, morals, and values. Pornography addiction has become an epidemic in our country and some believe the most pervasive drug in history due to its’ low cost, ease of accessibility, and secrecy. In addition, many young men are being exposed to this new drug at early ages, resulting in increasing struggles with abstinence, which adversely impacts their self-esteem, sense of worthiness, ability to participate in religious ordinances, serve honorable missions, develop a healthy sense of sexuality and the opposite sex, as well as engage in healthy relationships.

In addition, recovering from this addiction can be very difficult on one’s own. This is the reason this group has been developed, to maximize one’s chance for successful and lasting recovery.

Group members will develop the necessary knowledge, tools, and skills for a successful recovery and will have specific homework assignments to consider and complete throughout the week. In addition, group members will have the opportunity to share, discuss, and process their own struggles with others who share similar situations and circumstances. They will also be able to feel supported by other group members and learn the tools others have used to be successful.

This group meets on a rotating 8 week schedule with a maximum number of 12 participants each time this group is offered.

An Intake Assessment is required prior to the beginning of and in order to be referred to this treatment group. Please call our main office to schedule this appointment p>

Wednesdays 7:00 - 8:30pm

This group focuses on various perceptual lenses through which to view and understand addiction and the addictive cycle as well as teach and allow group members to develop the tools and skills necessary to more effectively manage their own struggles with addiction as they work towards their own recovery and healing. In addition, this group also provides the space to be able to share, discuss, and process one’s own individual struggles and unique circumstances that continue to drive addictive behaviors as well as feel the support of others who share similar struggles and learn tools and perspectives that have been helpful and useful for others with these struggles.

This is an ongoing group that meets on a rotating 6 week schedule with a maximum number of 12 participants. Each 6 week segment will focus on a different perceptual lens and approach to addiction recovery.
