Since 1988, Prescott House has been a pioneer in sex addiction treatment and provides 4 Certified Sex Addiction Therapists to provide the therapy needed to heal. There is not one specific factor that can be pinpointed to cause sexual addiction, there are many psychological, biological, and social factors that have been found to contribute to and enable this addiction. Proudly utilizing Dr. Carnes’ Thirty-Task Model, Prescott House helps treat men struggling with sexually compulsive behaviors. Operating in a therapeutic environment allows individuals to positively manage their addiction recovery. Utilizing self-esteem building tools for confidence, an overall sense of self-control is developed while re-entering the stream of life.
An in-depth sex addiction treatment program has been developed and headed by four Certified Sex Addiction Therapists (CSATs). Client support is provided through 12-step program attendance with positive community involvement and comradery.
What sets Prescott House far ahead of many other leading programs and facilities is our effective focus with a combination of individual therapy, group therapy, and structured community re-integration. Therapeutic modalities used at the Prescott House include evidence-based techniques such as Motivational Interviewing, Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), and Psychodrama Therapies, and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR).

Prescott House is unique in its mixed group and individual therapy method. New patients meet with a professional to gauge their addiction and work towards a resolution. Individuals are highly encouraged to attend their group meetings. Members can share experiences and grow together with this therapy program. Addiction in any form is treated as a medical issue, not a deviant lifestyle.
While many drugs have decidedly unique effects on the body – the mind in particular – the science behind addiction and dependence is distinctly systematic in that, no matter the drug, the way in which dependence works is the same.
What starts as casual experimentation with drugs and alcohol, often turns into repeated use or even addiction.
Once you reach this stage, your body starts to depend on the drug in order to maintain baseline levels of the same naturally occurring chemicals and hormones that one left you feeling “high.” Now, these chemicals are required just to function and a cease in using often leads to painful and disorienting withdrawal effects.
The science behind drug dependency is the same regardless of the actual substance, but it’s important to understand some of the most common drugs and how they affect users outside of the addiction itself.
An intervention may be necessary or just a simple sit-down conversation to bring these issues to the forefront. Each person who is struggling with this behavior is an individual who may be at a different point in their addiction than someone else. Prescott House can pinpoint their specific needs.
