Carol the Coach will be interviewing Caroline Smith who runs intensives for Pine Groves. She believes, "The word “recovery” literally means “to recapture or regain that which has been lost or stolen.”  Reestablish, restore, resuscitate, resume, reform, renew, and rebirth are all applicable concepts.   Meaningful-sustainable recovery is so much more than just cessation of self-defeating sexual behaviors and compulsive cycles of intensity, secrecy and despair.  Once destructive mood-altering patterns have been arrested, the journey of a lifetime can begin; the sacred journey within." 

Rather than reactively living in the past or anxiously worrying about the future, secure attachment requires living mindfully, moment by moment.  To use a financial metaphor “yesterday is a cancelled check, tomorrow is a promissory note, today is all the cash you have so use it wisely.”  Wisdom means finding ones internal therapist and incorporating ones internal observes/leader. To understand yourself requires looking at your life and attachment patterns and the influence of early childhood experiences on your life. Learn about your own attachment style and how it helped to trigger your SA.

Sexual Addiction is a disorder that requires strategies to assist you in maintaining recovery. This show is to help you access the books, the experts and the people who are managing recovery with The 12 Step Program and Patrick Carnes Recovery Task Model that reinforces the steps you need to take to manage your recovery and take your life through the journey so that you not only conquer the "Addict" but develop into the person you were meant to be!
