Wickenburg, AZ (PRWEB) June 29, 2012
The Meadows trauma and addiction treatment center in Wickenburg, Arizona, will offer a Men’s Sexual Recovery Workshop the week of July 23 from 8:30am to 4:30pm Monday through Friday at The Meadows’ campus. This five-day workshop examines sexual compulsive issues and behaviors by broadening many participants’ perspectives about sexuality as they learn to have productive experiences, maintain positive relationships, and avoid harmful patterns of the past.
The Men’s Sexual Recovery Workshop helps to lift shame that many people carry and painful memories of unresolved sexual experiences or uncontrolled sexual behaviors, in addition to helping to resolve sexual dilemmas and self-destructive behaviors. The workshop is best for those who want to jumpstart their recovery process, prevent relapse, and acquire tools to support continuing recovery.
According to Gail Yaw, Director of Workshops at The Meadows and a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, the Men’s Recovery Workshop is very popular. She attributes the popularity in part to high profile individuals who have received treatment in the last few years.
“There is now more willingness for men to realize that something might not be okay. That it’s not just being a man,” Yaw said. “For some people, sex becomes like food and that’s not healthy. Sex takes the place of the difficult work in learning how to be relational. It’s the quick fix and we are a society that wants quick fixes.”
Attending a Meadows’ workshop offers an individual many benefits. A workshop can be a cost-effective alternative when long-term treatment is not an option. Individuals who cannot be away from their work or families for an extended period of time can attend a workshop and work on sensitive issues in a five-day concentrated format. This allows individuals to jump start their personal recovery by gaining insight into patterns and practicing new relational skills within a safe environment.
