EMPOWER: Teen & Young Adult Porn Recovery Program
Empower is a porn recovery program for teens striving to overcome compulsive behaviors like pornography, technology, and other disruptive behaviors. Research is showing that Shame and Disconnection are driving factors behind unhealthy compulsive behaviors.
Many traditional recovery programs unintentionally drive shame deeper and contribute to feelings of failure and disconnection; Ask any loved one or friend what their experiences have been like in recovery.
The porn recovery program, also known as the Empower Program is about building confidence and self-worth. Rather than hyper-focusing on days/weeks sober, achievement and goal setting are proactive and positive behaviors; Behaviors that create physical, emotional and spiritual healing. Performance is quantified and celebrated by small day to day positive actions.
In summary, focusing on days/weeks sober only creates shame, isolation, and further depression. Focusing on behaviors that create change and promote positive behaviors is empowering and healing.
We view porn as a struggle, quite similar to conflicts you and I may have, overeating, gossip, etc… porn is just a struggle that your child is experiencing. Therefore, our non-shame based approach provides confidence and healing at every session.
In conclusion: Our love for your child is our driving force behind what we do.
