Nestled along the shores of Lake Ontario, Pickering offers not just scenic views but also vital resources for its residents, including Restoring Intimacy, a transformative program provided by JACS. This group therapy session, designed specifically for men, tackles problematic sexual behaviors and the challenges they pose to personal and relationship health.

Restoring Intimacy is led by a Certified Sex Addiction Therapist, Marlee Harendorf, who brings expertise and compassion to every session. Held online every Wednesday from 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM, the program is easily accessible to anyone in Pickering and beyond, thanks to its virtual format.

What sets Restoring Intimacy apart? Here are several pivotal elements:

Education on Sexual Health: Participants gain a deep understanding of sex addiction and its impacts, which is crucial for recovery.

Strategic Behavioral Management: The program offers tools and techniques to manage behaviors and foster healthier relationships.

Peer Support and Community Building: In a confidential setting, men share experiences and support each other, reducing feelings of isolation.

For those interested in joining or learning more about Restoring Intimacy, detailed information is available on the program’s page. JACS also offers a wide array of services and resources accessible through their comprehensive website. Direct assistance and more detailed inquiries can be handled via their contact page. Additionally, an extensive range of educational materials and further reading on addiction and recovery can be explored on the resources page.

The impact of Restoring Intimacy goes beyond just addressing immediate behavioral issues; it facilitates long-term recovery and significantly improves participants’ quality of life. Whether you are personally experiencing these challenges or know someone who might benefit from the program, JACS provides the tools and support necessary for profound personal transformation.
