Just as with a drug addiction, sexual addiction causes the user to become dependent on external stimulation to meet inner needs. The tragic cost of sexual addiction is seen in shattered marriages, broken families, accounts of sexual and physical abuse, and ruined spiritual lives.
The first step away from the snare of sexual addiction is to admit that you cannot win this battle alone. You need God’s help and the help of others who understand the battle and can show you how to gain victory.
Men’s Purity group is led by two co-facilitators who are mature in their walk with Christ and have experienced freedom from sexual addiction. This freedom comes through God’s power and practicing the principles covered in the group.
When you are ready to find freedom, call (215) 703-0540. This phone line is secure, and your name, information, and story will remain confidential.
