Restoring Integrity is a recovery group for men overcoming sexual addiction. The mission of Restoring Integrity at Ebenezer Counseling Services is to promote spiritual transformation in men who are recovering from sexual addiction in a confidential environment through relational support, accountability, and education.
Restoring Integrity addresses the spiritual aspects of change and addiction recovery from the perspective of historical, biblical Christianity. However, membership is open to all men who seek genuine change in their behaviors and lifestyle, regardless of their religious affiliation. Because Restoring Integrity places an emphasis on building transforming relationships, regular attendance and participation in meetings are critical. Also, because vulnerable confession with each other is necessary to break the chains of guilt and shame, members must be honest and open about past and present issues regarding sexual struggles and temptations.
Groups meet weekly, and most group members are recovering from addiction to pornography, the aftermath of extra-marital affairs, or face other painful sexual struggles. Meetings are closed, and members pay a fee to participate. In return they receive confidential attention in a professional environment where they learn more about themselves and build relationships with others who can relate to their issues. Restoring Integrity groups are led by experienced group members or trained therapists, and these group facilitators are supervised by Adam York [Link]
