CLINICAL

Our program is based on an integrative and holistic treatment model utilizing a multi-disciplinary team approach while providing integrative, experiential, group and individual services.

Our 28-Day residential Intimacy Disorders Program is founded on the “Trauma Induced Sexual Addiction Model” (TINSA®), created and developed by Dr. Michael Barta, CSAT- S. TINSA® identifies and treats the cause of Sexual Addiction through a neurobiological approach that looks at how the brain became disordered through early developmental trauma experiences, which, in turn, predisposes individuals to compulsive thinking and behaviors around sex, pornography and relationships.

The program focuses on treating trauma and addiction, as well as the impact on the partner and relationship. This is a trauma and cause-focused treatment approach, enabling us to ensure a more lasting recovery than symptom-based approaches.

ILC’s stand-alone intimacy disorders program is limited to eight men and is the only program in North America that includes partner support while the men are in treatment.

“Breathing in light and breathing out fear, we raise each other up.”
