Sex Addicts struggle to make attachments to other human beings. They feel uncomfortable in their own skin.  Sexual Addiction is compensation for failure to make attachment. (Kenneth M. Adams Ph.D., CSAT-S. www.drkenadams.com)

Kavod Addiction Recovery Center offers people who struggle with sex and relationship addictions support, hope, and healing to learn to bring true intimacy into their lives and rebuild relationships.


The Kavod program is based on Patrick Carnes PhD’s task centered approach to addiction treatment. The task centered approach provides daily structure in the form recovery tasks that are performed by the sex addict. The intention is to create a “deep focus” on recovery. Our program for the addict consists of thirty tasks. 

The first seven tasks are;

  1. Break through denial
  2. Understand the nature of addictive illness
  3. Surrender to process
  4. Limit damage from behavior
  5. Establish sobriety
  6. Ensure physical integrity
  7. Participate in a culture of support

Sex addiction is traumatic for all family members. It is essential to help the family address the distressing effects of sex addiction and to partake in recovery. The entire family needs care and attention. Our program, therefore, is also designed to address the needs of the family.
