Recovery Groups: What They Are And How To Get Involved

After helping people overcome pornography addiction for more than 20 years, we’ve learned some important lessons along the way. One of those lessons is this: pornography addiction thrives in isolation. When pornography is a secret habit surrounded by fear and shame, it has tremendous power to keep people trapped. However, when someone receives help from an understanding and supportive community, porn quickly loses its power. This is why porn recovery groups as so important.

The 12-step model for recovery (most famously used by Alcoholics Anonymous) works exceptionally well for men and women struggling with pornography. These Christian organizations take a similar approach, and offer local chapters in many areas as well as online groups:

Counseling and Therapy Options for Porn Addiction

This article contains important information and links about finding a counselor or therapist for porn addiction. It explains some of the different approaches to counseling, particularly among Christian counselors, so you can make the most informed choices. It also includes support groups and other organizations that provide help for individuals and couples.

Residential Treatment Programs

For someone deeply enmeshed in habitual porn consumption, a residential treatment program can be a great way to kickstart recovery. Two of these options are HopeQuest and Boulder Recovery.

Unfortunately, not every area has local options, so it’s not feasible for people in some locations.

Software for Porn Addiction

Want to take a technological approach to confronting porn? While our devices give unprecedented access to porn, there are also many wonderful software tools to help with recovery. With so many options, you’ll want to think through what features are most important before you decide.

We already mentioned the free Covenant Eyes Victory App. You can also check out our article, 4 Key Features of Great Porn Addiction Apps for more detailed information.
