Seeking Integrity @ South Florida
Seeking Integrity @ South Florida targets not only problematic sexual fantasies and behaviors, but overall psychosocial functioning. Each client receives both individual and group therapeutic assistance tailored to his unique and highly individualized background, problem behaviors, and goals for healing and recovery. We utilize a cognitive-behavioral treatment curriculum derived from the most up-to-date research and theory, with alternative therapeutic modalities integrated as appropriate and necessary. This is the approach proven to be the most effective with addictions of all types.
- We take a nonjudgmental, non-stigmatizing approach to sexual fantasies and behaviors. We do not judge any client’s sexual thoughts or desires. We do not ever attempt to change a client’s sexual orientation or attractions. We do, however, when needed, utilize strategies aimed at self-management and behavioral containment as part of our commitment to individual, family, and community safety.
- We recognize the need for and focus on the development of social support as an integral part of the healing and recovery process. We do this because we know that prodependent, recovery-focused connections, rather than willpower, babysitters, and an endless string of rehabs, are the key to lasting recovery.
- Our program does not end after primary treatment. We have created an online community through our ancillary website, SexandRelationshipHealing.com, so that members of each treatment group can remain in contact with and continue to support one another. We consider this an ongoing, long-term element of the treatment experience.
- We are invested in community safety and make this a priority in treatment. Our program addresses and necessarily includes interventions aimed at protecting the welfare of clients, staff, and the public. As such, developing tools to increase accountability and prevent relapse is an integral component of our programs.
- Our program requires a behavioral demonstration, from each client, of commitment, motivation, and willingness to make significant life changes. We believe that without this, treatment is likely to be less effective than intended.
