I'm assuming they're going with "sex addiction", and considering it's a faith based center, I'm also assuming their bar of what qualifies is considerably lower than mine is.

No idea what his will be like since it's faith-based, but there was a reality show consisting of exactly that: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sex_Rehab_with_Dr._Drew

Basically people lived in the hospital and weren't allowed to masturbate or most traditional vices (no drinking etc.), there was a lot of group therapy and one-on-one therapy, various activities (I remember one involved them being set loose in a staged room with plates and poo poo they could just smash and yell out their frustrations with)...

But these were all people with legitimate repressed issues that were leading them to making life-ruining decisions involving sex, basically the sex equivalent of the people who binge drink and wake up most days in jail or on the sidewalk with no recollection of how they got there.

Curriculum is based on a level system

They too begin making incredible changes in their lives which in turn encourages the addicted and others.

Success Story

quote:

When I got into the RU program, I initially came to “shut my son up”. He had been encouraging me (nagging, I thought) to attend. From this first part, you can tell where my walk with the Lord was! Way off!! I was a Christian, but a very lazy, unconcerned, and, (really, I guess) uncaring person. I attended church Sunday A.M. only- No Sunday School, no P.M. service, and certainly no mid-week service. I read my Bible spasmodically. I did tithe (always) and had pretty good prayer life.

I don’t know what I expected my first night; and frankly, I still can’t describe it to anyone – but I was hooked!! I loved it! The program especially appealed to me, as I am extremely competitive. The challenges just “spoke” to me. It was me against the book and other classmates at first, and then God really got a hold of me as the Scriptures, the definitions, the essays, and especially the journaling began to bring about a real change in my life. I don’t think I’ve missed more than 3-4 Friday nights in two years.
RU is really my lifeline. I tell everyone about it, pass out tracts, and just want everyone to know what God can and will do for you if you are willing.


I am an older person, and memorization sometimes gives me trouble, but God is faithful and I always get it done. I am now a group leader and I know that the RU program, other than being saved, is the best thing that ever happened to me! Praise God for His faithfulness, even when we don’t deserve it!

The founder of the center has a great book



quote:

Most every Christian understands that they cannot be possessed; but yet, they still find themselves doing things that make them sure the devil made them do it. How does this happen? Very simple . . . demonic oppression. Learn how Satan uses outside pressure (oppression) to render God's people discouraged and apathetic in their God-given responsibilities in life.

Hello there guy with an external locus of control and a community who has enabled you and will forgive you everything (and blame your unsubmissive wife).
In this program we will reinforce the idea that god/demons are the source of all your decision making, and emphasize total forgiveness for all your actions.

It's an expensive cure, but one that will let you keep loving prozzies and duggaring kiddies on the down-low.

Please memorize this passage from Paul's letters to the Romans, kthks. Congrats, you're now cured of evil!

Back when I was a fundie and terrified of my gayness I did like the first step of their 'recovery' program. It involved giving this insane level of detail about your sexual history to people who weren't qualified counsellors but 'prayer warriors' and them being all smiley and telling you that don't worry God had helped them with their sex thing he can totally help you not be a homo too.
As you've probably all guessed most of their 'sex problems' were things that anyone outside fundamentalism would just call a 'sex life'. Whacking it to porn, occasionally noticing that other attractive women exist, etc.

I noped out after like one day so all I saw was lots of prayer but I'm sure it would have got weird as poo poo after.

Another treatment was called “healthy touch,” which Unger described as an exercise where you learned how to touch men in a “'healthy' way, not a sexual way.” It involved picking a male partner, and hugging and cuddling on the floor while the lights were dimmed and slow music played in the background, he said.

Among the “cures” offered by Jews Offering New Alternatives for Healing were subjecting participants to anti-gay slurs in a locker room setting, and requiring them to undress in front of a mirror, each other, and a counselor who would also remove his clothes, court papers say.

The other article also mentioned one participant being encouraged to blame his mother for everything. Apparently the cure for the gay is awkward homoerotica and Oedipal misogyny!

Jim Bob

http://www.people.com/article/josh-...uggarville-nike

quote:

But behind the scenes, powerful patriarch Jim Bob, 50, exerts authority over his wife and family, several close sources tell PEOPLE in this week's issue. (The Duggar family did not respond to requests for comment.)

"Jim Bob's favorite word is 'no,' "says one Duggar family source. "He's like a dictator. He once saw a guy kissing a girl before marriage and confronted him about it. And the guy said, 'Jim Bob, show me that verse in the Bible that says we can't kiss. Get out your Bible.' And Jim Bob was like, 'Uhhhh ...' because no one ever confronts Jim Bob. No one."

Almost entirely cut off from the secular world, the Duggars strictly limited their children's exposure to popular culture – and the source says that Jim Bob went as far as removing the batteries of any toys that made music "because he didn't want [his kids] to dance or move their bodies that way."
