If sex addiction is destroying your life, Begin Again Institute is here to help. We can guide you to recovery from sex addiction at our luxury treatment centers in Colorado or Tennessee.

Our team of experts will help you uncover the root cause of the sex addiction and give you the skills you need to control your sexual urges.
Understanding Sex Addiction
Sexual behavior becomes an addiction when it begins to harm you, but you still can’t control it. It might affect your relationships, career, health, and other aspects of your life. Living with a sex addiction is like living with a drug or alcohol addiction. Sexual thoughts consume your attention. The craving for sexual activity is so strong it makes you feel out of control.
Symptoms of compulsive sexual behavior include:
- Sexual behavior causes conflicts within relationships, at work, or within yourself
- Feeling guilt and shame about your behaviors
- Sexual activities are rarely satisfying because you always want more
- Focusing on sexual activities and ignoring other aspects of your life
People with sex addiction experience a general loss of control and preoccupation with sexual activity. But there is help. With focused sex addiction treatment, you can stop these behaviors before they do more harm.
Approaches to Sex Addiction Treatment
Sex addiction treatment typically takes a two-pronged approach to recovery. The first step is to discover and heal any root causes for the behavior. The second is to redirect compulsive thinking to correct behavior.
Begin Again Institute’s sex addiction treatment program uses the Trauma-Induced Sexual Addiction model or TINSA®. TINSA is a neurobiological approach that helps clients understand the way their mind and body respond to trauma and helps them process that trauma. We combine this approach with various treatment modalities, depending on your unique needs.
Internal Family Systems Therapy
Internal Family Systems (IFS), an evidence-based treatment for sexual addiction, helps clients identify the sub-personalities that make up their whole selves. Conflict between sub-personalities can lead to discord within the core self.
For example, one sub-personality may want to be a moral, faithful partner. It may be in conflict with another sub-personality who engages in risky sexual behaviors with strangers.
Brainspotting is an innovative treatment that helps resolve unprocessed trauma. This therapy posits that feelings can become trapped in the physical body. Specific techniques free trapped feelings and reset the brain’s reaction to painful events.
The Value of Individualized Treatment Plans
Each person comes to treatment with their own unique perspectives and histories. Sex addiction treatment is not a one-size-fits-all experience. With your input, your clinical team will create an individualized treatment plan. Your plan will address your specific concerns and support your goals.
Treatment Options with Begin Again Institute
Begin Again Institute offers three sex addiction treatment programs, depending on your unique needs and the type of treatment you think best suits you.
14-Day Men’s Intensive
The 14-Day Men’s Intensive provides a framework for healing unhealthy sexual behaviors. The program includes:
- Trauma-focused therapy from licensed therapists specializing in sex addiction treatment
- Access to staff 24/7
- Transportation to group off-campus activities
The intensive is on a gorgeous private campus in a historic home in Berthoud, Colorado.
28-Day Intimacy Disorder Program
The 28-Day Residential Intimacy Disorder Program is for men who need a higher level of care than a 14-day program can provide. We may recommend the 28-day BAI program if you experience:
- Attachment disorders
- Love addiction
- Pornography addictions
- Intimacy disorders
- Compulsive sexual behaviors
- Relationship problems
- Other co-occurring disorders
The 28-day program is on 10 pristine, private acres west of Nashville, Tennessee. The clinical work at this program is like the work done in the shorter programs, but the extended time allows for more therapy, education, and healing.
14-Day Christian Men’s Intensive
The 14-day Boulder Recovery program is a Christian-focused intensive for men of faith with sexual addiction and intimacy disorders. The burden of sexual addiction can be even more challenging to talk about for men of faith.
This program, located in Boulder, Colorado, offers the same amenities and therapeutic options as the 14-day BAI. However, it has a focus on building a stronger relationship with God.
Support for Loved Ones
Sexual addiction affects relationships on many levels. Partners of men with sex addiction experience betrayal and trauma. This trauma can not be overlooked if healing and recovery are to last.
Our virtual Partner Support Program is free to the spouse of any man participating in one of our programs. Participants receive support from a trained program facilitator. Group support sessions and psychoeducation from a betrayal trauma specialist are also included.
The goals of the Partner Support Program are to help partners heal from betrayal. Specific issues include setting healthy boundaries, self-care, and learning self-regulation techniques.
