We Want Others to Remember You for Your Recovery, Not Your Addiction Problem…  Freedom Can Start Here!

“The most satisfactory years of your existence lie ahead.” What a wonderfully hopeful AA outlook of recovery.  The reasons people seek sexual addiction treatment services are varied. But the leading reason is failure to stay sober, resulting in suffering from unmanageable chaos. Most treatment service providers offer individual counseling. What we’ve found is that individual counseling alone tends to not be enough support if the goals are sobriety and life balance. A more comprehensive service model that includes group therapy, family therapy, and 12-step support is an alternative that has been found most effective in treating sexual addiction and adding the promise of a satisfying life.

Sexual addiction is a self-destructive illness, and the truth is there is no quick fix. For those working so desperately hard to get you to realize your self-destructive behaviors, learning there is no quick fix might be devastating, for they hold dear their relationship with you. Yet the pain caused by your behavior, your arguments and defensiveness, your secrets and lies they desperately want to end so they enjoy the real you, the you recovery can reclaim. This truth is the same for everyone seeking to reclaim their life from sexual addiction. Nothing compares to the quality of life that recovery provides because it opens up the pathways to deeper spiritual faith, to intimate and long lasting love relationships, and the deep appreciation of knowing and accepting yourself. You matter! And recovery helps you connect into that. Through recovery, your sexual addiction changes into a life-giving experience. Call today for help overcoming your sexual addiction.

All of the program services offered or created by Coeur d’Alene Counseling have the capability to treat multiple addictions, or what is sometimes referred to as co-occurring addictions and childhood trauma.

Any sexual addiction treatment should have well-trained licensed professionals. Ed Dudding is specifically trained and experienced to provide specialized individual therapy for addicts, spouses or partners of addicts, and survivors of childhood trauma.  He is experienced in traditional methods of psychotherapy as well as addiction and trauma approaches.  He also works collegially in a network with other professional therapists trained in trauma specific EMDR to make appropriate referrals.  Because participation in group therapy compliments individual therapy by managing the addiction in a structured setting, it is recommended that clients include group therapy as part of their course of care.
