Men’s Sex/Porn Addiction Group

Many men who struggle with sex addiction share similarities: poorly developed personal relationships and a disconnection from their feelings. Male sex addicts often confuse or substitute sexual acting out with emotional intimacy. Furthermore, they are often not connected to a social group in which they can explore and develop safe and healthy male-to-male relationships. In this group, the men grow and heal as a result of the therapeutic interventions, the shared sense of accountability, and the transparent and supportive relationships.

Group therapy and individual therapy are among the most effective treatment modalities for sex addiction. Typically, group therapy is provided in conjunction with other therapies. Although there are similarities, group therapy is not the same as a 12-Step group.

The 12-Step group, although an important and at times vital component of sexual addiction recovery, approaches sex addiction differently than individual and group therapy. For more information about 12-Step groups, visit www.help4sexualaddiction.com.

Sex addiction treatment begins with a thoughtful, sensitive, and thorough assessment. From the assessment, treatment options are recommended. For sex addicts who are not in need of inpatient or intensive outpatient treatment programs, individual, couples counseling and/or group therapy are often recommended.

I am offering group therapy for men who are struggling with Sexual Addiction or Sexual Compulsivity. This includes cybersex/internet porn addiction and romance addictions. Robert Schnitzius LMFT, CSAT will be facilitating this important treatment option for male sex addicts. Sex addiction group therapy provides a safe and effective place for men to address the multi-layered aspects of their addiction: relationships, family, work, friends, self-esteem, finances, etc.

If you have any questions about the group, please call 510.394.2209 for more information.


Robert Schnitzius, MA, LMFT is a Certified Sex Addiction Therapist (CSAT). He provides assessment and treatment services for sex and internet addicts and their partners, as well as professional consultation and training services.

All referred clients must agree to an initial interview/diagnostic session during which Robert Schnitzius and the client will determine the appropriateness of group therapy. Group therapy is not recommended for sex addicts who are in the beginning stages of recovery; instead, individual therapy is a more appropriate option.
