The Mend Program Guiding Principles
The Mend Program is dedicated to helping clients achieve personal wholeness. Each client’s recovery program is individually tailored to achieve a life balanced in physical, emotional, mental and spiritual spheres.
The Mend Program offers a unique partner sensitive approach. We understand how problematic sexual behaviors and the addict’s recovery affect the partner/spouse. Our services specifically attend to partners/spouses and family members (who can feel ignored during traditional sexual addiction recovery).
Unlike most recovery programs available today, at The Mend Program we help couples navigate the recovery process together. In early recovery, marital or couple’s therapy is contraindicated, but the coupleship still requires milestones and interventions tailored to guide each couple through the recovery process.
The Mend Program starts with a collaborative therapeutic relationship between the client and therapist. Our clinical team of addiction and partner specialists regularly consult as a team (with the client’s approval) to ensure we address all aspects of each case. We also collaborate with pastors, churches and outside clinicians working with our clients in recovery treatment and crisis marriage restoration planning.
The Mend Program integrates Biblical Christian principles into sexual addiction recovery, sexual betrayal trauma therapy, and couple’s counseling/recovery for clients who are agreeable to this approach.
We also present educational seminars regarding sexual addiction and sexual betrayal.
