Family Strategies has two options for high school-aged boys to
learn about addiction
and develop tools for sobriety:
An onsite group therapy program or an education online class.
Based on the pioneering work of Patrick Carnes, Claudia Black, Jon Bradshaw, Rob Weiss, Don Hilton, and other professional clinicians who have researched this topic for over 30 years, the “Band of Brothers” group was developed for teenage boys who are compulsive in their use of pornography or other sexual stimulants. Our program teaches concepts of addiction and tools for sobriety and is superior to other interventions for three reasons:
We have a series of handout materials and progress achievements the young men utilize to learn about their compulsions. Our system has been polished over many years of working with youth and is organized in a way that is fun for the boys. The young men progress through “Ranks”, and responsibilities and rewards are offered to help them maintain motivation. We employ a team of therapists who have experience with these complicated issues, and who have a good rapport with youth. Our specialists work together and regularly communicate about each young man. As a group, we also attend the annual LifeSTAR conference to review current research and trends within the field of sexual addiction. We then bring the latest science and current techniques into our group interventions.
A young man’s progress often depends upon his parents’ and families’ ability to make changes within the family system by adjusting dynamics or parenting techniques. As parental involvement is essential to their son’s success, parents are expected to learn and participate through family counseling and are required to attend monthly Parent Workshops.
Good recovery means more than simply NOT slipping. It means making internal changes. Young men must make changes inside themselves for lasting recovery. Most young men require 12-24 months to work through the program. However, we do not put time constraints on them or shame them if they require more time to gain the necessary skills. Growth is our main objective.
