Our intensive treatment model was developed by Dr. Michael Barta to address the core of the addiction. Working with the most current research in neurobiology, attachment, and trauma, Dr. Barta finds the why and how of the addictive behaviors. Once the core or cause is found, remission can occur. The intensive program is designed to save you nine to 12 months of individual therapy, enabling you to take control of your recovery, form a strong understanding of how you have damaged yourself, your wife/partner, and all of your relationships. These intensives can be done on consecutive days if you are traveling from outside of Colorado, or can be done over a period of weeks if you are local.
Addict 3-Day Intensive
The 3-Day Intensive was designed for the male addict to focus on his own addiction and the causes of his addition. We focus to stop all sexually acting out behaviors, find why the addiction formed in your life, and build solid plan for lasting sobriety and recovery.
Addict 4-Day Intensive
Our 4-Day Intensive is designed to provide the same schedule as out 3-Day, however the added 4th day allows you to fully understand the betrayed partner’s feelings and trauma that were caused by your addiction. With this understanding you can really begin to heal the pain, provide more empathy and form a plan to keep you both safe from destructive sexual behaviors.
Our Couple’s Intensives are designed to stop ALL unhealthy sexual behaviors and to uncover the cause of and explain how and why it happened. We focus on how the addiction formed and progressed in your personal and relational lives. We also deeply explore and begin to heal the damage the addiction has created both personally and in ALL of your relationships. Our Intensives use the latest neurological, psychological and psychobiological treatment methods to uncover attachment wounds and trauma that occurred that predisposed the addiction.
Our Couple’s intensives happen over a period of 4- days. This intensive can be done on consecutive days if travelling from out of state, or broken down over a period of weeks if local.
14-Day Program with Accommodations
Dr. Barta formed a sister company, Begin Again Institute (BAI) in 2016 to provide a deeper level of care for men struggling with sex and pornography addictions. Since its inception BAI has successfully treated men in a 14-day format enabling them to stop their problematic behaviors cold, get to the core of their addictive behaviors, and heal their relationships. Dr. Barta designed this program because he found men needing deeper help that could not be gone from family or work obligations for the 35 days most treatment centers offer.
