At Family Strategies Counseling Center we utilize a three-phased treatment program for pornography addiction counseling in Mesa Arizona. It’s called LifeSTAR and is designed for adult, heterosexual men and their wives. The program is based upon the pioneering work of Patrick Carnes, Pia Mellody, Claudia Black, Jon Bradshaw, Rob Weiss, Don Hilton and other professional clinicians who have researched this topic over the past 30 years. Our program is superior to other interventions for three reasons:
- We have an established system for participants to track their growth in recovery.
- There is a high level of collaboration within our program between therapists.
- The program is updated to reflect current science and research.
While other programs do not have an established system, we have a series of workbook materials and tasks that participants utilize to progress in recovery. This standardized process has been polished over the past fifteen years of working with hundreds of clients struggling with pornography addiction in Mesa Arizona. Additionally, we hire a team of “specialists” who already have experience with these complicated issues. Our specialists work together and regularly discuss the situation of all the participants, collaborating on the needs of those in the program. Finally, we attend the annual LifeSTAR conference to review current research and trends within the field of sexual addiction. The latest science is updated within the workbooks, and current techniques brought into our group interventions. In summary, our program has a polished system for treatment, bolstered by current research, and implemented by a team of specialists who collaborate and plan for individual participant needs.
