This program brings hope to those men struggling with sexual and relationship patterns of behavior that conflict with their values and cause painful consequences to their relationships, their financial well-being or to their spirit.  The Grace Program is designed to nurture healthier relationships with self, sexuality, family and friends.Although we are not a sex offender program, many who have compulsive relationships or other compulsive sexual behaviors have other legal consequences.  The Grace program combines several therapeutic modalities to engage individual learning styles and to bring structure and focus to clients’ recoveries.  The program is centered on the research-based treatment originally designed by Patrick Carnes, PhD to help clients change at personal and neuronal levels.This program supports 12 weeks of recovery and is not available as a partial program.  During this program, clients are required to attend at least 2 meetings (Sexaholics Anonymous, Sex Addicts Anonymous, or Sex and Love Addicts Anonymous) per week.
