StepHouse Recovery Now Treats Hypersexual Disorders and Codependency


(PRWEB) April 07, 2015

StepHouse Recovery, an addiction rehabilitation center headquartered in Fountain Valley, recently unveiled an outpatient therapy program aimed at treating sexual addiction and codependency. Based on the addiction model which is directly analogous to drug and alcohol dependencies, the treatment method prioritizes the understanding of sexual addiction as a disease, in need of a proper diagnosis and care, rather than as a breach of morals or self-control.

Treating sex addiction and codependency may have its own unique set of challenges in comparison to how we treat chemical addictions says George Vilagut, CEO and Founder of StepHouse Recovery, who spearheaded the program. But like that fix or high alcoholics and drug addicts seek, sex addicts and codependents are often engaging in these behaviors as forms of escapism from troubling emotions, or to cope with lurking mental illnesses, such as depression, anxiety or post-traumatic stress disorder. Our goal in treating sex addiction, codependency, and the majority of addictions is to treat the underlying causes so healing can take root.

Conditions and behaviors to be treated include (but are not limited to) the impulsive, repetitive use of pornography, consistent immersion in adult bookstores and other sex-themed environments, serial infidelity, a series of casual anonymous sexual encounters and/or brief affairs, consistent engagement in prostitution and other sexual services, compulsive masturbation, voyeurism and exhibitionism. Whats crucial to identifying a sex or love addict has to do with the high-cost consequences incurred in major areas of a persons life (such as health, finances, career and significant relationships), as well as his or her inability to control them, despite any accompanying feelings of guilt and shame.

Vilagut hopes that the new program will help destigmatize sexual addiction and remove barriers to what he and many others consider a treatable condition. Though its estimated that 5 percent of the Americans struggle with hypersexuality, the number is likely to be higher because so few are willing to admit that they have a problem. In contrast to those who need help for their substance abuse disorders, men and women with sexual addictions face additional obstacles to treatment, making it a lonely struggle for the majority of them, Vilagut says. Whether those influences are social, cultural or religious in nature, sex addicts are often isolated from the shame and humiliation of what they perceive is a highly-personal and morally-defective condition. Our goal at StepHouse Recovery is to provide a safe and therapeutic environment where those with codependent and hypersexual disorders can get the treatment they need without fear of judgment and castigation.

For more information about StepHouse Recovery’s sexual recovery program or program enrollment, contact George Vilagut at 1(888) 923-7623 or email georgev(at)stephouserecovery(dot)com.

IAVA Partners with EHE International on Veteran Mental Health Ad Campaign


New York, NY (PRWEB) April 02, 2015

Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America (IAVA) joined with EHE International to unveil its newest public awareness campaign at Rockefeller Plaza today with a message about helping veteran heroes who may exhibit the signs of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). The window display, which is expected to be seen by more than 250,000 people every day, depicts service members and post-9/11 veterans as superheroes, with the message Sometimes even heroes need help, and directs the public to visit http://www.iava.org to find resources to help transitioning veterans.

The campaign epitomizes IAVAs work as the leading veterans advocate for post-9/11 veterans after the organization helped spearhead, craft, introduce and pass the Clay Hunt Suicide Prevention for American Veterans (SAV) Act last month, which increases access to quality mental health care and combats veteran suicide.

More than 2.6 million brave men and women – including tens of thousands of New Yorkers – have served our country over the past 13 years, and we thank EHE International for providing us this remarkable space to recognize their service. There is perhaps no better place for us to salute these men and women than in the city that inspired many of them to enlist after that harrowing day in September 2001, said IAVA CEO and Founder Paul Rieckhoff. IAVA is proud to display this new campaign to the thousands of people who visit Rockefeller Plaza each day. Our veterans are indeed heroes, but they are not infallible. Some of us need help but are too proud or stubborn to ask. This campaign encourages the public to recognize the signs of PTSD in their friends and loved ones returning from war, and assist them finding the help they need. As the first and largest veteran empowerment organization for post-9/11 veterans, IAVA has a vast array of resources at its disposal to help veterans deal with mental health challenges and connect them with others in the community. Our veterans are not a charity; they are an investment. As the war in Afghanistan comes to an end, it is imperative Americans remember the sacrifices of the post-9/11 veterans and continue to support them in their transition home. Being a hero doesnt mean they have to suffer alone. Whether veterans are struggling with mental health care, unemployment, or VA health care challenges, IAVA has their back.

EHE international is delighted to make this gift to IAVA. Through education, advocacy and community building IAVA empowers a generation of veterans who provide sustainable leadership for our country and their communities, says Deborah McKeever, President of EHE International.

IAVA offers free membership to veterans of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars. Interested veterans and supporters can visit iava.org/#join to sign up today. The organization also has an in-house case management team, the Rapid Response Referral Program (RRRP), where caseworkers help connect veterans facing transition-related challenges – including mental health challenges – to resources. Whether it is thinking about school, needing help navigating the VA, or confronting significant challenges like unemployment, financial or legal struggles, or homelessness, IAVAs Veteran Transition Managers get veterans the services they need fast.

IAVA is also a lion on the policy front in Washington, D.C. Over the past 10 years, the organization has grown to become the leading advocate for veterans of wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. IAVA has put top issues for veterans on the map and jump-started historic changes, including passage of the Post-9/11 GI Bill, funding for health care at the VA, the VOW to Hire Heroes Act, the Clay Hunt SAV Act and other efforts to combat veteran suicide, and, in 2014, a national focus on the high VA disability claims backlog.

Artist Todd Allen of Prototype Advertising created the ad and Jay Embree of Proforma Signature Solutions served as production designer.

Taking a leap of faith toward peace and recovery


DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (PRWEB) March 24, 2015

According to Ark of Hope for Children, 40 million children around the world are subjected to abuse each year. Ruby Lee Tuesday grew up in household of hatred in Norway where her father beat her down physically, mentally and emotionally until she escaped to the United States.

In her new book, Better Believe: A Story of Hope, Tuesday offers an inspiring story of determination, passion, betrayal and hope. The musician-turned-author journeys from the darkness of abuse into the light of self-healing where she learns to believe in herself for the first time.

The most challenging part of writing this book was definitely to face and admit to all of the pain and sorrow from so many years ago, Tuesday said. I wanted to finally tell all the secrets I was beaten not to tell.

Better Believe: A Story of Hope is Tuesdays form of therapy where she tried to make sense of everything she experience and come to terms with where her life is now. As a victim of child abuse, she turned to music and many years of spiritual and physical healing to reach inner peace.

I needed to take care of my whole being, my body, mind, emotions and spirit, Tuesday said. I want to share with others what life has taught me so far.

Youth Mental Health First Aid Training in Bergen County Sponsored by AFSP


Fair Lawn, NJ (PRWEB) March 19, 2015

The Northern New Jersey Chapter of the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) in cooperation with Care Plus NJ, Inc. (CarePlus) is providing the funding for the nationally-recognized Youth Mental Health First Aid (YMHFA) training course on April 30th at the CarePlus Fair Lawn facility.

This training is not only important for mental health professionals, it is also critical for gatekeepers in the community including all adults who interact with children: parents, school staff, coaches, neighbors and others. The objective of YMHFA is to provide knowledge, resources and an action plan so that individuals in the community can be confident in addressing mental health problems in youth.

This special training is an opportunity to become certified in YMHFA free of charge, as well as to learn how to get involved with the AFSP and their mission to prevent tragedies within the local community. The certification course will establish an understanding on how to link a youth to the necessary resources before a situation escalates into a crisis. Many times people want to help, but they do not know what to do; this program will provide that insight.

The AFSP recognizes the importance of community education, said Lorraine Mackin, NJ Area Director of the AFSP. This training goes hand-in-hand with our mission of understanding and preventing suicide through research, education, and advocacy.

Recently, the AFSP partnered with the National Council for Behavioral Health and pledged to provide Mental Health First Aid and Youth Mental Health First Aid trainings in towns and cities across the country. The Northern NJ chapter of the AFSP is funding this opportunity for members of the surrounding community.

The award winning 8-hour Youth Mental Health First Aid course will be facilitated by certified trainers from CarePlus and hosted at the organizations Fair Lawn location at 17-07 Romaine Street. Additionally, through collaborative efforts, the training will also provide mental health professionals in attendance with 7.5 Continuing Educations Units (CEUs) at no additional cost.

The key factor here is prevention, Mackin explained, we need more people to be aware of signs and symptoms of a potential mental health problem so that they can lead a young person to help before it is too late.

This training is open and has been designed for all community members interested in learning more. Space is limited, so those who wish to participate must register to reserve a seat.

For more information, please contact Lindsay Rivera at 201-843-5218, ext 5226 or click here.
