Out-of-Control Sexual Behavior Men’s Therapy Group; This group is for men experiencing out-of-control sexual behavior. It offers a sex-positive, non-judgmental and non-pathologizing alternative approach to sex addiction treatment. Men will identity their own core values around their sexual behaviors and identify recovery in an individualized fashion that is specific for them. Issues addressed will be sexual orientation, sexual fluidity, sexual shame, childhood sexual abuse, infidelity and sexual problems within their relationships. Rather than focusing on sexual behaviors as the problem, men will explore their core values and principles related to their sexual behaviors and examine their attachment styles in relationship to others.

Gay/Bisexual Men’s Chemical Dependency & Relapse Prevention Therapy Group: This ongoing group will address issues related to chemical abuse, dependency and relapse prevention. In today's "immediate gratification" centered society, many of us may struggle with balancing a good time with over indulging. Especially men who have sex with men, who are statistically at higher risk for substance abuse or misuse because of trauma associated with sexual orientation, gender identity, and sexuality. Men in general get high for a variety of reasons beyond sexuality; chemical abuse doesn't necessarily lead to an addiction. This ongoing group will provide a safe space to discuss issues related to substance & alcohol use and life skills which lead to a more healthy lifestyle. This group is open to all sexual orientations.
