Center for Healthy Sex

Sex and Love Addiction 11-Day Intensive at Center for Healthy Sex is built upon the tenants of Interpersonal Neurobiology using Alexandra Katehakis’s Psychobiological Approach to Sex Addiction Treatment (PASAT). The program is highly relational and, therefore, deeply trauma based incorporating material from McDaniel's, "Ready to Heal” research from "Making Advances,” and art exercises by Marilyn Murray, including the original Trauma Egg. Clients report completing the programs with their dignity restored, sound recovery skills and a felt sense of the issues they need to continue working on. Cost $8500 (does not include sober living)


Women’s Love Addiction Weekend Workshop: Are you ready for a healthy love and sex life?

This 3-day workshop takes an integrated approach to treating love addiction, drawing on the latest therapeutic interventions and science-based research about intimacy, desire, love, sexual health, and happiness. This is an experiential workshop providing the tools needed to break free of problematic relational patterns to start developing a core sense of authentic emotional intimacy.  Clients will learn what love addiction is, examine their own destructive cycle, explore its historical roots, and deconstruct the cultural beliefs about sex, love and femininity that fuel it.  Additionally, they will deepen their understanding of healthy romantic relationships, create a personalized plan to help reduce harmful behaviors, and learn how to expand their capacity for personal integrity, intimacy and erotic radiance.  Cost $395 (does not include housing)

Rio Retreat Center at The Meadows

A 5-day intensive for female sex and love addicts.  Journey of a Woman's Heart: Finding True Intimacy is the name of our women's only sex and love addiction workshop.  We help women to explore the ways in which their addictive behaviors and relationships are
major obstacles in finding the true intimacy they desire.  We also incorporate The Meadows' commitment to focus on trauma by delving into relational trauma that set up current addictive and problematic relationship behaviors and patterns. 

Journey of a Woman's Heart: Finding True Intimacy

Wickenburg, AZ

5-day intensive (Monday-Friday)


Created by The Meadows Program Directors in collaboration with Alexandra Katehakis,  We draw from the work of Dr. Patrick Carnes, Kelly McDaniel and maintain commitment to The Meadows’ focus on application of the best trauma modalities currently supported in the field.

This workshop is created for women who want to explore unhealthy sexual patterns and behaviors that deeply impact their ability to connect relationally in healthy ways. Whether the issues involved are past or present trauma, cultural messages, or negative beliefs, all can serve as roadblocks to true intimacy. Understanding the neurobiology that leads to sexual obsession and compulsivity offers a foundation to shame reduction, and the alleviation of self-loathing.  Emotional regulation, body image, triggers for sexual acting out, and grief related to the myriad of associated losses are just a few of the many issues that are explored. Methods of enhancing esteem from within, rather than seeking validation from other sources are instilled. Critical to ongoing recovery, the ability to differentiate the behavior from one’s worth offers the participant greater compassion for self. Participants garner necessary tools and develop their own individual recovery plan. This workshop offers each individual a safe, supportive environment in which to explore sensitive issues.
