LIFT for Pornography Addiction
Pornography addiction can make life incredibly difficult for you and your family. The LIFT Program is our unique approach to treating this addiction by using group therapy support and guidance from expert therapists in the field.
A Unique Approach to Treating Pornography Addiction
Facing and undoing the impact of pornography addiction demands willpower, courageous honesty, and help from people who have faced the same struggle. Through the LIFT Program, you’ll gain access to online modules, Q&A sessions with expert pornography addiction therapists, regular group therapy meetings, and other specialized resources to support your long-term recovery.
Upon starting the LIFT Program for pornography addiction treatment, you’ll spend 8 weeks learning in a group therapy environment with other program members. This compassionate, non-judgmental process of discovery will teach you more about how pornography addiction affects your life and the lives of those you love.
Next, you’ll take part in a six-stage process over 52 weeks that combines online modules with weekly group sessions led by expertly trained pornography addiction therapists. You and your group will have regular opportunities to discuss what you’ve learned together, deepening your learning and supporting each other on your path forward.
The six stages of LIFT for pornography addiction focus on:
1. Education, Hope, & Direction
“I know the principles of recovery”
“I know how to start building trust”
“I know what I am hoping for”
2. Safety, Honesty, & Intention
“I have a safety plan”
“I take daily actions that align with my intentions”
“I practice rigorous honesty”
“I am developing healthy attachments”
“I am developing shame resilience”
“I know that healthy boundaries lead to better connections”
4. Acceptance, Forgiveness, & Resilience
“I can identify my strengths”
“I can step into my fears”
“I have practiced real forgiveness”
5. Freedom, Fun, & Acceptance
“I have written and shared a freedom manifesto”
“I have hobbies I love that I can practice”
“I know what I can do and what I can’t”
6. Recovery & Long-Term Well-Being
“I understand what I have been through and why”
“I acknowledge the changes I have made”
“I can support others who are struggling”
The LIFT Program is more than group therapy—it’s a living, growing recovery community that shares knowledge and provides support on an ongoing basis. At Therapy Utah, we believe that building a support network around each client is the best way to facilitate real, lasting healing from sex addiction.
Statement from Brannon
I believe that healing is possible. There is always hope. Pain is an opportunity to grow and move forward; you just need to know how to walk through that pain. I believe there is goodness in most everyone and that goodness can be found again even if bad things have happened. Therapy is not always easy, but being willing to face the hard realities is an important part of the healing process. Recovery is overcoming shame to create connection again.
"It made me think of the hard things that I needed to change in my own life."
"Being from out of state it has been very hard to get good group work in my local area. Having LIFT virtual was awesome. Such a better experience than I had with [another program], even in person."
“I liked that LIFT was more than just psychoeducation and that we were able to get to know other group members a little bit."
"Such honesty. No sugar coating it, trauma is trauma."
