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 intimacy disorders have affected men in treatment for years, undermining the recovery process. Childhood and sexual trauma often lay the foundation for many addictive processes in sex and intimacy disorders. South Pacific Private’s Men’s Sex Addiction and Recovery Program is specifically tailored towards men and examines the impact these behaviours can have on developing and maintaining healthy relationships while teaching the skills of recovery that lead to a life free from addiction.
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.
South Pacific is 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.
