Services and Treatment
For sex and pornography addicts and their partners
for both the addict and the partner
Dr. Michael Barta created his unparalleled online courses to allow individuals worldwide access to many of the very same recovery modules used in his intensive programs and the opportunity to begin or continue healing from the effects of sex and/or pornography addiction.
14-Day Men's Residential Intensive
Begin Again Institute’s 14-Day program treats men suffering from sex and pornography addiction. Our program utilizes the TASK Approach developed by Dr. Patrick Carnes coupled with trauma based treatment to help the addict stop destructive sexual behaviors, find the root cause of the addiction, and create a solid foundation for lasting recovery.
We are highly partner sensitive and focus on helping the addict understand and repair the damage caused to their partner and to the relationship utilizing the APSATS Multidimensional Partner Trauma Model.
4-Day Men's Intensive
Dr. Barta provides detailed assessments to get a clear picture of your addictive behavior and develops a treatment plan based on your specific needs to get and keep you sober. Next, we work to treat the cause of your addictive behavior once sobriety has been established. Research has found that there is nothing more effective for continued sobriety and recovery than working on the core or cause of the addiction. In our treatment, we effectively uncover the root causes of your behaviors and quickly heal them using the two trauma protocols of EMDR and Brainspotting.
4-Day Partner's Program
Dr. Barta's 4-day intensive program for partners that have been affected by the destructive behaviors of sex and pornography addicts aims to nurture partners through the painful process of healing from what is known as a sexual “betrayal trauma” while helping them find their voice and regain trust in their intuition and power. This 4-day intensive treatment program helps partners of sex and pornography addicts find safety and begin healing from the trauma caused by intimate betrayal. The addict in your life has received all the attention and help, now it is time for you.
Dr. Barta's Couples Intensives are designed to treat sex and pornography addicts and their partners in a front-loaded, intensive treatment format. The intensives are ideal for couples who have just gone through discovery and are in crisis, desire a significant head start in their recoveries, and need more support and education than what is found in weekly individual or couple’s therapy. Couples intensives are typically done over a period of 4 days, with 4 hours of intensive therapy per day. Follow-up assignments and exercises are given with a specific focus on repairing relationships damaged by addiction.
