Pornography Sexual Addiction

Pornography and Cyber-Sex Addiction

The first of its kind nationally, STAR Guides offers wilderness therapy that has been uniquely designed for adolescent males combating pornography addiction, cyber-sex addiction, and other compulsive sexual behaviors. This is a particularly effective intervention for those who have been unsuccessful in the past in breaking free from their addictions. Completely unplugged from technology and modern society, addicted teens learn new ways to deal with difficult emotions and problems while exploring the remote high desert of Utah. This life changing experience provides youth with the foundation to build their adult life, free from sexual addiction.

Youth who participate in the program come to more fully understand pornography and sexual addiction and the accompanying behaviors while being provided the opportunity to develop skills to eliminate the addictions from their lives. Youth gain awareness of the addiction cycle, the science of pornography addiction, the underlying emotional issues leading to addiction, thinking errors and most importantly, the program provides a strong focus on abstinence maintenance and the creation of a recovery plan for youth to use for maintaining long term abstinence after they have completed treatment.

Academics

In addition to intensive psychotherapy services while in the wilderness, students also participate in an academic program and earn academic credits in the areas of Physical Education, Health/Nutrition and Creative Writing/English during their stay that can be transferred to their current school transcript.

The Expedition

Youth participate in treatment groups of no more than nine creating opportunities for trust and brotherhood to be established. Each group is led by skilled wilderness instructors. Treatment services are provided by a professional therapist trained in the area of pornography and sexual addiction. Youth track their abstinence and are accountable to their treatment group for it. Successful graduation from the program requires completion of the Breaking Free workbook and 60 days of abstinence from compulsive sexual behavior issues.

Upon completion of the expedition, the youth is connected to an outpatient therapist who can continue to provide the STAR Guides treatment model in an outpatient counseling office.
