Florianopolis, Brasil (PressExposure) March 16, 2013 -- Lavario, one of the largest providers of addiction therapy programs worldwide, has launched an updated version of its self-help program against sex and porn addiction. It now also contains individual coaching by email. Patients remain anonymous and can send their questions and problems via email to the team of therapists who provide professional and helpful answers within a few days.
Many sex and porn addicts are ashamed to go to a psychotherapist and to open up to a complete stranger and to talk about their darkest secrets. Through an online program, patients find help without anybody knowing about their problems. The key building blocks of the Lavario program remain the "your way out of the addiction book" and the "day to day guide" exercise book, both updated to a 2013 version. The individual coaching is complementary and provides additional support during the eight-weeks treatment.
Sex addiction therapy and porn addiction have become very present in the media during the last five years, with famous people like Tiger Woods and Michael Douglas supposedly suffering from it and movies like "Don Jon's Addiction" with Scarlett Johansson and Joseph Gordon-Lewitt participating in the 2013 Berlinale film festival. With the rise of the internet, porn addictions and sex addictions have become two of the fastest growing problems among adults world-wide.
However, with cognitive behavioral therapy, psychoanalysis and relaxation techniques, such as employed in the Lavario program, these addictions can be successfully overcome. Lavario states that the individual coaching included in the new version of the program will be able to increase the likelihood of breaking the addiction to almost 100% - provided that the participants are willing to work through the program between 30 and 60 minutes per day during a two months period and it they go through all the exercises and checklists.
