Broad range therapy programs are not appropriate for teens; opt for STAR Guides sexually specific therapy programs instead

Sexual behavior issues can have devastating impact on the life of a teenager; it can potentially ruin their future. Self destructive behavior as a result of abuse or sexual offending can result in long lasting consequences. If they continue to progress and their patterns are not disrupted, they could end up facing serious legal issues in the future.

To negate the long term effects of problematic sexual behavior and aid the teens in their road to recovery, STAR Guides offers sexual specific treatments. The experts at STAR Guides believe that each type of inappropriate sexual behavior requires its own specific treatment program.

The treatments that STAR Guides offers are tailor made for teens with different sexual behavioral issues. Their treatment plans have a unique blend of wilderness survival training and intense therapy sessions, conducted by their highly trained and experienced therapists.

A STAR Guides representative, Matt Bulkley (Psychotherapist), spoke about their sexual specific treatments, “Treating sexual behavior issues requires a specialized setting that allows a youth to feel safe talking about highly sensitive topics, such as sexual behavior problems. Because of this, most treatment programs that treat a broad range of teen behavior problems are simply not appropriate.”

STAR Guides offers sexual offenses and sexual compulsivity treatments for teenage boys. They provide comprehensive assessment and treatment for youths who have committed a sexual offence. The highly experienced therapists at STAR Guides know the ramifications of sexual offence at such an early age. So, they aim to provide an impactful and life changing therapeutic experience.

The early and often exposure to pornography can lead to many sexual behavioral issues in teens, sexual compulsivity is one of them. Sex and porn addiction can take root in a person during adolescence, STAR Guides provides a therapeutic experience to help them navigate beyond these issues. But, it is important that help be provided at the right time, before the problem becomes dire.

STAR Guides also offers a treatment program for teenage girls that have sexual reactivity issues. Girls, who have experienced trauma and abuse, can exhibit promiscuous behavior as a result of their trauma. At STAR Guides Wilderness, they learn to live in a wilderness setting and go through intensive therapy. Taking part in this program can set participants on a journey of healing and they can successfully deal with their past abuse.
