Trying to decide what intervention may offer you the best bang for your buck can be tough. You may have wondered whether an intensive program can help and may feel confused about all your options.
Carol the Coach will be interviewing Greg Woodhill, MFT, CSAT who will talking about the value of doing intensives. He works for The Center for Healthy Sex in Los Angeles, CA which offers customized Intensive Out-Patient Programs for males, females, and partners. The intensive for male and female sex addicts is an eleven-day program which deliberately limits to no more than four people. This insures that each person gets quality care and attention and leaves the program with sound recovery skills and a felt sense of the issues they need to continue working on when they return to your care. It also offers a one-week program for partners that customize to their needs.
Greg explains, "The Task Centered Approach remains the cornerstone of our work but all of our clinicians take a psychobiological approach to treatment. We work with the clients regulatory capacities from the beginning of treatment, engaging them in very gentle trauma work. The client’s regulatory capacities inform how far we can work into the affective system while keeping them on track with their recovery."
