Family Intensive Program
Thorpe Recovery Centre’s Family Intensive program is designed specifically for families to help them learn new ways to cope with the addiction: methods that will promote recovery for both the family and the addict. It can be incredibly confusing for someone who is not addicted themselves to understand someone else’s addictive behaviour.
The Family Intensive Treatment Program provides an opportunity for clients and their families to gain a better understanding of their family of origin and current family system and begin the process of healing together. Clients and their families learn how to better communicate and support each other emotionally and appropriate boundaries. Having both the families and clients working together fosters the healing process and brings the family closer together. This has also been proven as a significant factor in long term healing and recovery.
Partners of Sex Addicts Intensive Program
Healing the Trauma of Betrayal
Sex addiction is characterized by, compulsive sexual behaviours. High-risk behaviour that is part of sex addiction includes pornography, prostitution, voyeurism, exhibitionism and anonymous sexual encounters.
Working from a clinical model based on addiction and trauma, partners impacted by the destruction of sexual compulsion have the opportunity to begin healing from intimate betrayal. Participants learn about the biology and the behaviour of sex and love addiction and explore their relational templates.
It is an experientially-based program that assists partners in moving through their grief and loss, breaking free from the attachment to fantasy, and enhancing emotional self-regulation. Developing internal, external, and sexual boundaries, participants learn how to move from a position of victimization to personal empowerment.
This intensive creates a safe and compassionate environment that provides a path to healing that gives voice to the partners’ truth as they embark on their journey to recovery.

SA Intensive Program (Sex Addicts)
Sex addiction is characterized by compulsive sexual behaviour. This can be high-risk behaviour that includes pornography, prostitution, voyeurism, exhibitionism and anonymous sexual encounters. Like any other addiction, the consequences to oneself and their loved ones are physical, emotional, financial, and social.
We have clinicians trained in a specialized approach to treating sex addiction under the International Institute of Trauma and Addiction Professionals (IITAP). These counsellors are Certified Sex Addiction Therapists (CSAT), educated in the appropriate methodologies to assist in the treatment of sex addiction in group and individual settings.
