Not Support Groups, but Group Counseling Sessions to get to the heart of the issues.
For many people, group counseling offers advantages over individual counseling. Counseling in a group setting of people dealing with similar issues allows powerful relational dynamics to enhance healing and recovery. While our groups are led by a professional counselor, much truth and insight also comes from the other members of the group. Each person is at a different stage and provides encouragement and accountability to fellow group members.
Our next Men’s Pornography and Sexual Addictions Recovery Group (a.k.a. “High Ground”) will meet on Mondays from 6:30-8 PM, starting 11 September, at CMMF Ministry Office.
High Ground groups are open-ended. This means that a man can join at any time and may “graduate” from the group when he has reached certain goals and feels ready to leave. Group size is limited to a maximum of ten men.
Participation in the men’s groups begins by scheduling an individual appointment to begin the counseling relationship with CMMF and purchasing the participant resource kit. A history, assessment of needs, and appropriate placement in groups are discussed. The initial one hour individual appointment costs $100 and the participant resource kit is $50. The resource kit includes the group manual and internet filtering and accountability software. If you are referred to our group by a ministerial staff member or counselor, your resource kit is FREE! Just tell us the name and email address of the minister or counselor who referred you to us when you register and we’ll knock off $50!
Our pornography and sexual addiction counseling groups are led by ordained minister, retired military chaplain and Board Certified Christian & Pastoral Counselor, Dr. John VanderKaay, and focus on the underlying spiritual and emotional issues that contribute to sex addiction.
Men, if you are not serious about dealing with your problem, this group is NOT for you. The group is not about playing games or checking a box. It is for REAL men who will take responsibility for themselves. We are not here to beat you up, but we are here to come alongside and call you to repentance and to become the man God designed you to be, especially if you are a husband and father! We are not going to have group hugs or ask you to hold hands. We are going to ask you to be a man and honor God and your wife with all that you think and do!
We hope to begin offering groups for both a women’s pornography and sexual addictions group and a support group for women in relationships with men recovering from pornography and sexual addictions.
