Seeking Integrity is a cutting-edge, expert-guided, addiction treatment organization dedicated to helping men eliminate troubling patterns of addictive sexual behavior and paired sex and drug addictions (chemsex). Seeking Integrity’s intensive therapeutic healing environments are designed to break through the intense layers of shame and pervasive denial that nearly always surround adult problems involving sex and drugs. Our work is designed for men who, often due to early life trauma, neglect, and/or profound adult losses tend to self soothe and emotionally escape via sexual fantasy and sexual acting out with or without co-occurring drug abuse. Our program’s strong focus on personal growth via evolving strong peer bonds and personal accountability is designed to lead each man toward his own personal and relationship integrity with the help of licensed experts. At Seeking Integrity, we invite our clients to move beyond addictive self-obsession, addictive behaviors, and narcissism to ultimately understand and embrace the responsibilities that come with adult relationships and family life.
If you ask yourself, “Why can’t I stop cheating? Why can’t I stay clean and sober? Why can’t I keep promises, especially those made to myself? Why do I keep hurting the very people I love?” we can help. Those working within our programs are trained to respond to every man and his life-partner/family regarding the answers to these questions and so much more.
Seeking Integrity’s highly specialized, intensive addiction program—over 25 years in the making—was pioneered by internationally known clinical sexologist, expert, author, and media presence Dr. Rob Weiss, who first created The Sexual Recovery Institute in Los Angeles in 1995, one of the first intensive outpatient treatment programs in the US for sex and pornography addiction. Since then, Dr. Rob has penned nearly a dozen books, including Sex Addiction 101, Cruise Control: Understanding Sexual Addiction in Gay Men, Out of the Doghouse, and most recently the family healing focused Prodependence: Moving Beyond Codependency. Over the past 25 years, Dr. Rob has continued to grow and expand his services to include the creation of multiple residential addiction treatment programs around the country as he has worked to educate both therapists and the general public on technology’s impact on our sexual and intimate lives, particularly on those suffering from sex and porn addictions. Dr. Rob is committed to creating holistic and lifestyle integrated approaches to addiction care to help men, women, partners, and their families heal from these painfully shameful disorders.
Dr. Rob and international treatment expert Dr. David Fawcett have joined together at Seeking Integrity to evolve comprehensive, truly individualized treatment for sex addiction and paired sex and drug addiction. Dr. Fawcett’s book, Lust, Men, and Meth, is the definitive work in the treatment of paired drug and sex addictions (chemsex). Thus, the Seeking Integrity team is led and facilitated by global experts in the fields of behavioral and drug addictions, together having over 60 years of clinical expertise. Dr. Rob Weiss and Dr. David Fawcett, along with the Seeking Integrity team, work daily to create truly unique and effective treatment experiences for sex and drug addictions.
No one has to walk this journey alone. No wife, no husband, no addict, and no loved one needs to search for healing by himself or herself. Seeking Integrity provides a 24/7, comfortable, monitored, safe, supportive living environment paired with an accountability-based treatment model implemented by clinicians trained to meet the needs of each man’s real-life situation and circumstances. There is no ‘cookie-cutter’ approach here! You need only engage us for treatment and then begin to apply the comprehensive tools that so many have followed before to change your life.
Dr. Rob is a digital-age sex, intimacy, and relationship specialist. He has spent more than 25 years developing treatment programs, educating clinicians, writing, and providing direct care to those challenged by digital-age infidelity, sex and porn addiction, and other addictive disorders. He is the author of ten books on sex and intimacy issues, including the pivotal volume on sex and porn addiction, Sex Addiction 101.
Dr. David is a substance abuse expert, certified sex therapist, and clinical psychotherapist. He founded and chaired the South Florida Methamphetamine Task Force, a national coalition addressing the meth epidemic. He also founded Meth & Men South Florida, recently rebranded as No More Meth. He is the author of the only book on fused substance/sex addiction, Lust, Men, and Meth.
Seeking Integrity was founded in the fall of 2017 by Dr. Rob to move treatment for sexual health, intimacy disorders, sex addiction, pornography addiction, relationship/love addiction, and traditional addiction treatment for substance abuse into the 21st century. Today, much of our daily lives at home and work now occurs online through the Internet, Facebook, Instagram, apps, Twitter, blogs, podcasts, etc. With that being our experience, today’s recovery support, self-help, and recovery education no longer need to be limited to face-to-face experiences at workshops, 12-step meetings, and the local coffee house.
Dr. Rob and his team first developed a no-cost, open access website, SexandRelationshipHealing.com, which offers a wide range of information and interactive resources relating to infidelity, sex and porn addiction, substance use linked with sexual behavior, other sex and relationship issues, and sex therapy. The next step was opening Seeking Integrity treatment centers—environments that meld cutting-edge treatment theories regarding attachment trauma and addiction with digital technology.
To this end, Seeking Integrity treatment programs incorporate ongoing, no-cost online discussion groups, educational webinars, and other meetings as a part of every client’s aftercare program. This keeps each client in regular contact with the support network that helped the client establish sobriety/recovery, no matter where they live.
At Seeking Integrity, we believe very strongly that building and maintaining a supportive community of recovery (both online and in the real world) is a key to long-term healing. We ask: Why help people build healing connections only while they’re in treatment? Why not set up ongoing online support so wherever a client might be, he or she can always connect with friendly, empathetic, and familiar support? This is a big part of what separates us from other treatment providers.
As Dr. Rob developed cutting-edge addiction treatment, he also embraced the need for a fresh approach to viewing and treating spouses, partners, parents, and other loved ones of addicts. This led him to develop the concept of Prodependence. This fast-growing model for the treatment of loved ones of addicts pushes aside the long-standing, often problematic challenges of codependence, replacing that blame and shame-filled model with a more loving and compassionate attachment-based model.
Dr. Rob introduced the concept of Prodependence in his book, Prodependence: Moving Beyond Codependency. He felt compelled to write this book after three decades spent watching countless spouses, partners, and parents walk away from much-needed therapy and support because they felt labeled, shamed, blamed, and pathologized by a treatment model (codependency) that didn’t fit. Since publication in early 2018, Prodependence is changing the way therapists around the world work with loved ones of addicts and other troubled people.
