Group Description:

The Sex Addiction Recovery Group is the only specialty therapy group directed toward the treatment of sexual addiction in San Francisco. SARP provides confidential, ethical and effective clinical programs that encourage healthy sexuality, relationship intimacy and personal integrity.

The psychoeducational groups meet once per week for 2 hours. Group focuses on shame reduction, maintaining sexual sobriety through high levels of accountability, the value of honesty, being congruent in all areas of life, and expressing feelings. In addiction, addicts become lonely, withdrawn and isolated. Group therapy aids in creating intimate bonds by encouraging group members to have explicit conversations about their sexuality, body image, relationships, and life struggles. In an environment that supports sexual sobriety, integrates, normalizes and celebrates eroticism, sexual health can unfold.
