Unlike sobriety for alcoholism and drug addiction, sexual sobriety is not defined by long-term abstinence. So what does it require? The good news (and maybe the bad news, if you happen to like rigid rules) is that there’s no cut-and-dried answer to this question. Every sex addict enters recovery with a unique life history, a distinct set of compulsive sexual behaviors, and singular hopes for the future.
Based on these deeply individual factors, each sex addict is asked to create his or her own definition of sobriety. This definition typically takes the form of a Circle Plan (also referred to as a Boundary Plan or a Sexual Sobriety Plan). If you are new to sexual recovery and struggling to get started, it’s probably because you don’t have a Circle Plan that clearly defines your problem sexual behaviors.
To remedy this situation, Seeking Integrity has created a LIVE, INTERACTIVE Two-Session Circle Plan Workshop. In session one, you will learn about the basics of sexual sobriety and Circle Plans. Between sessions one and two, you will create your unique Circle Plan. Finally, in session two, your plan will be presented and discussed, with feedback and recommendations for needed changes.
