This month, the Center for Relationship and Sexual Recovery at The Ranch introduced a specialized women's program for love, relationship and sexual addiction. Developed by internationally known sex addiction specialist Robert Weiss, LCSW, CSAT-S, the program addresses these concerns in conjunction with co-occurring issues, such as substance abuse, eating disorders and emotional trauma.
This gender-separate, gender-specific program mirrors the already existing men's sex addiction program, with particular emphasis on the unique needs of women. Living in a small, supportive community, women learn to establish healthy boundaries, positive self-esteem and more fulfilling relationships.
