Their mission is to form and nurture an accessible, comprehensive, interactive continuum of care – both online and real-world – for people seeking to understand, confront, and heal problems with sexual behavior and relationship intimacy.
There are many blogs, inspirational and informational articles, podcasts, tests, resources, workshops, online support groups, and events available on this website. Main therapists are Dr. Robert Weiss, Tami VerHelst, Dr. David Fawcett, and Scott Brassart.
Dr. Rob validates partners in their relationship with an addict, helping partners find the truth of their situation, and to cut through the lies and excuses to find facts an reality. I can believe what Dr. Rob says because, as an addict himself, he has lived the addiction and recovery experience. I also know he feels the pain that partners go through because he displays the empathy we are looking for (but usually can’t get from our addicted spouse). He has done a lot for my emotional well-being, giving me tools to identify red flags when they come up, and to recognize my partner’s sincerity and sorrow. Tami’s point of view is also helpful in identifying the triggers of his addiction and helping me understand that like the whack-a-mole game, he stops one addictive behavior and starts another. Dr. Rob and Tami have also noted that depression and anxiety can manifest along with addictions, and that is truly my partner’s situation. They have helped me understand this. As of now, my partner says that terms like sexual trauma, neglect, and abuse do not resonate with him, but it’s possible that that may change as he gets deeper into his recovery.
