May 03, 2011 (PRLEAP.COM) Health News
Center for Healthy Sex, the Los Angeles-based sex addiction treatment clinic, has introduced an 11-day intensive outpatient program focused on sex addiction treatment for men.

A treatment approach more rigorous than weekly or biweekly therapy, the intensive outpatient program includes 52 hours of treatment techniques specially designed to help men contain compulsive sexual behaviors, establish sexual sobriety and develop an effective relapse prevention plan for long term recovery.

"The new program is designed for men struggling with compulsive sexual behavior who can't afford several weeks away from work to pursue treatment. It offers our clients enough containment to tackle the problem and return home with a written plan to create a strong support system and remain stable," says Alexandra Katehakis, Clinical Director of Center for Healthy Sex.

Throughout the eleven days of intensive treatment, patients are prompted to explore topics such as core values, victimization, eroticized rage, guilt, shame, boundaries, compassion, empathy, communication and healthy relationships. "Our work is complete when our clients have established a healthy sex life free of shame and secrets," says Patrick Mancuso, Therapist at Center for Healthy Sex, who describes the clinic's approach to treatment as multi-faceted and holistic.

Program dates announced for 2011 include May 9-20th, June 13-24th and July 11-22nd. The clinical team at Center for Healthy Sex invites all interested clients and healthcare professionals to call (310) 987-7752 for a free phone consultation, or email info@thecenterforhealthysex.com to learn more.
