Is there a sliding scale?

We do not have a sliding scale for group. The price that we charge is very fair considering that the group is 2 hours long and is limited to six people.


Why a 25 session commitment?

A 25 session commitment is required in order to help each person feel safe in the group. The topics that may be included in these groups are very private and sensitive. Group members want to know that everyone in the group is entering at the same level of commitment. When a person makes a 25 session commitment, he stays long enough to move through any resistance (scared feelings about changing) and have enough time to make an accurate assessment of the value of the group for him.


How much is the individual assessment session?

It depends upon who you see. Linda charges $135. per hour and Brad can be seen on a sliding scale.


Why do I need an individual session?

We need to make sure that you would benefit from group at this time. It is also a time that we can get information that assures us that you do have sex addiction as well as other issues that you might be dealing with.


Is the group primarily heterosexual? I am gay? How would you handle it if I were in the group?

Both Brad and Linda have made it their business to be very comfortable and knowledgable about issues related to gay clients. We have had gay clients in group with heterosexual clients and created an atmosphere of acceptance and support.


What about people of different races, marital status, age, etc.

We do not have teenagers in our group. It is for those 20 and over. That being said, addiction is an equal opportunity disease. There are differences in issues faced by younger and single addicts. We deal with those issues in group.


How is it different from other groups, such as 12-Step?

12-Step programs do not offer the education about addiction, recommendations and advice, and input from other group members that are central to our groups. Also, because our group is led by therapists, we go into more vulnerable topics such as molest and other forms of abuse.


Why do we have to go to 12-Step meetings?

12-Step meetings are essential to recovery from any addiction, in our opinion. You can find a meeting to attend every day for support, they are free and are attended by people who understand your problem and accept you. You can also get a mentor (sponsor) who you can learn from and lean on. Meetings also help you to structure time.


Do you take credit cards?

We take all credit and debit cards. Call now at 916-972-7831 to sign up!


I have an individual therapist. Do I have to stop seeing that person to be in the group?

We very much support your continued individual therapy. We do want a release of information to talk to your therapist, however.
