Sex Addiction: Couples Program
The Ranch treatment center offers a three-day workshop for spouses and partners of clients in our sexual addiction recovery program. The program is open to all spouses and partners (as clinically appropriate) regardless of their current relationship status.
Our three-day workshop introduces partners to resources for healing and support. The program includes psychoeducational and experiential activities for rebuilding trust and reconnection. Couples explore their relationship boundaries, control issues and communication skills while working with therapists specially trained in relationship issues, trauma, sex addiction and intimacy disorders.

How It Helps:
Goals of the couples workshop include:

- Hope for both the client and partner that they can rebuild trust in themselves and their relationship, if desired
- Exploration of relationship boundaries and control issues
- Preparation for challenges both client and partner will face after treatment

Our workshop team typically includes an associate sex addiction therapist as workshop facilitator as well as an equine therapist, adventure therapist, case managers and other specially trained staff. The couples workshop occurs on Thursday, Friday and Saturday in two and three week intervals. Clients’ loved ones may also attend The Ranch family program, but must first take part in our sex addiction recovery couples workshop weekend.
