Addiction and mental health disorders often co-occur, with many relying on multiple addictive behaviours to medicate uncomfortable feelings. At South Pacific Private we treat all addictive processes and the underlying causes.
Sex, love and avoidance addiction have affected women in treatment for years, undermining the recovery process. South Pacific Private’s Women’s Relationships in Recovery Program is specifically tailored for women to examine the impact these behaviours can have on developing and maintaining healthy relationships.
Childhood and sexual trauma often lay the foundation for many women’s addictive process in sex and intimacy-related addictions. The program is facilitated by dedicated and experienced therapists who understand the complexity of these co-occurring conditions and provide a safe place for you to heal and feel.
At South Pacific Private, we are looking forward to helping you make sense of your sexual history, to understand your behaviours, and to face the chaos and unmanageability that has been created in your life.
