Self Study Series

Be empowered to take charge of your own healing

No two people are alike. Some sex addicts and their partners need their focus of healing to come exclusively within the office of a professional therapists. Others need to approach healing at their own pace. At City Gate, we support your individual recovery needs and choices.

On this page you’ll find a library of worksheets, daily discipline reminders, video lessons, and more that you can learn from and educate yourself through.

Self Study Program for Sex Addicts

We are creating the “S.A.F.E.T.Y.” Self Study Series. This is a three month, self-study path-to-recovery for those struggling with sex addiction. It will better help you lay the foundational skills and knowledge needed for a steadier long-term recovery.

Created by Carol Conklin, a sex addiction therapist with 25+ years of successful recoveries, you’ll make daily strides toward recovery by way of enlightening video lessons, custom tailored reading assignments, confidential support group sessions, and more. You’ll better understand the “whats, whys, and hows” of your addiction and practical ways to start tackling it.

Whether choosing to meet with our therapists, only going through the S.A.F.E.T.Y. Program, or better yet, doing both, you can find your path to recovery here at City Gate!

Sex Addiction Related Resources

When you’re not speaking with your therapist, or you’re not engaged in self-study video sessions, it’s very easy to become distracted or lose track of your progress. This is why we’ve created accessible resources that you can save to your smartphone or print.

Add these resources to the daily recovery habits you’re already engaged in, and you’ll strengthen your resilience while nurturing positive habits.
