The Six-Day Intensive (6 Days)

General Overview: 
  • Those who are currently working with a therapist on but need more time than an hour session to break through to their core.
  • Those who need treatment but cannot commit to 42 days yet still want to take the beginning steps toward a new outlook and understanding to support the road to recovery.
  • Those who have been to treatment and are in recovery and have a feeling of fear of relapse or need to re-center oneself.


If you are open to the process and willing to do the work and let go of some control for a week and if you want healing, our Intensive Programs are for you!


What our attendees have said about this program:

  • “…one of the most life-altering weeks I have ever experienced.”
  • “Phenomenal. A week of inner-exploration and realization of why I continue to engage in the thought process of my addiction to food.”
  • “I have been in treatment several times and nothing compares to this week of extraordinary work and commitment by the facilitators.”
  • “The Week-long Intensive is just what the name implies…a week of intensive work.”



Six Day All-Inclusive Intensive

Unresolved pain is toxic to one’s soul and can manifest into self-destructive behaviors such as eating disorders, alcoholism, broken relationships with loved ones, intimacy issues, isolation, anger, and other disruptions.

In the 6 day program, you will begin to unearth the roots of pain and start a “detoxification” of all the unresolved emotional, chemical, physical, and spiritual manifestations that bind your soul.  Armed with and the knowledge of how to fill your soul with self-love, worth, and trust, one can begin to live life free from the bonds of pain.


Love: (January 19-23, 2015)

Love addicts go through life with desperate hopes and constant fears.

This program will help guide the love addict through the feelings and fears of abandonment, pain, anger and emptiness and create an opportunity to explore their self-judgments without fear of the judgment of others.


Co-Dependency: (March 16-20, 2015)

Codependency underlies all addictions and usually involves a disconnect in the relationship with one’s self.

Treatment will begin to explore existing beliefs and patterns of relationships and culminate in the process of re-establishing appropriate ways of relating with others that provide for a balance of self-awareness and self-fulfillment.


Survivors: (February 15-20, June 28-3, July 19-24, and September 27-October 2, 2015)

All types of abuse are painful, can cause psychological distress, and or leave deep psychological wounds. These intense, often negative feelings may plague the survivor as he struggles to cope and deal with feelings of shame, guilt, and alienation.

This program is designed to help a person express and process these difficult emotions, develop self-compassion and self-care strategies, and provide  social support by building bonds with other people who have lived through similar experiences.


Co-Sex Addiction: (August 3-7, 2015)

Sex addiction can lead to significant problems or distress and is often associated with a number of potential medical, occupational, legal, social, and emotional complications.

This program is designed to concentrate on two goals: separating you from harmful sexual behavior and facing the guilt, shame and depression associated with this illness. Each individual will benefit from the support and structure of recovery groups as well as individualized sessions with directed interventions that enhance self-esteem and self-image, address emotional problems, and other therapies tailored to the individual.


Trauma 1 & 2 (May 18-22, October 26-30, 2015)

Trauma is an emotional response to a terrible event like an accident, rape or natural disaster as well as any event that is horrific in one’s personal perception. Reactions range from shock and denial to unpredictable emotions, flashbacks, and strained relationships.

This two part program will begin to re-establish feelings of safety and stabilization by de-sensitizing and processing the traumatic memories and culminate in a focus on the re-connection and integration with family and friends and re-storing the capacity to enjoy life.


Imago Therapy: (Dates TBD)

A highly effective form of relationship and couples therapy that focuses on understanding the relational paradigm.

This program is helpful for new couples, those together for many years, people in business relationships, and more and provides resources for individuals seeking to find a way to be more effective in their life and relationships.


Adolescents: (Jun 22-28, July 27 – August 2, 2015)

As many as 10 in 100 young adults and children suffer from an eating disorder. Overeating or restricting related to tension, poor nutritional habits and food fads are relatively common eating problems for today’s youth. Unfortunately, many teenagers hide these serious and sometimes fatal disorders from their families and friends.

Our program is designed to begin addressing these issues through individual, group therapy, and family therapy
