Because of the sexualization of our culture, the ease of access to explicit media and the potency of today's pornography, more and more people are seeking help for addiction to pornography. Unfortunately, pornography addiction is a problem that has become a major factor in the destruction of marriages and families. It is anticipated that the need for effective treatment for those addicted will significantly increase in the years to come.
The STAR Guides program provides therapists with a formal structured approach to working with individuals struggling with pornography addiction. The program provides separate tracks for teens, young single adults and married adults.
The program utilizes the Breaking Free workbook which is a curriculum that provides clients with a step by step, structured approach to learning to manage the addiction. There are versions of this workbook uniquely designed for teens, young single adults, and married adults.
Therapists in the STAR Guides network are provided an initial comprehensive training to become qualified to provide treatment. Additionally, each month, therapists receive a one hour CEU training to continue to grow their knowledge and skill in the area of pornography addiction treatment. STAR Guides providers can earn up to 16 CEU credits annually.
STAR Guides is set up to be easily implemented into any already existing outpatient counseling clinic and is currently being provided in 18 office locations around the United States.
