Recovery Programs Offered By TARC For Sex And Porn Addicts In Chattanooga

Tuesday, August 21, 2018

Becca Davis, Licensed Professional Counselor and Certified Sex Addiction Therapist in Chattanooga, is the Founding Director of the Trauma and Addiction Recovery Center (TARC), a center established to help meet the needs of those hurting as a result of sexual addiction in our community.  

"It’s a silent cause of destruction in the lives of many. Sex and pornography addictions are often associated with plenty of failed attempts to resist temptation. Hurting addicts and partners, embarrassed by addiction, instinctively want to keep their struggles a secret, which causes greater harm over time," officials said.  "It is estimated that three-six percent of Chattanoogans struggle with compulsive sexual behaviors; that is approximately 5,500 to 10,500 people. Finding someone trustworthy and knowledgeable to help in Chattanooga has grown difficult as the number of people struggling with sexual addiction is greater than the number of qualified local professionals. 
 
"Skilled TARC professionals facilitate the Healing Way Beginnings Intensive Outpatient Program for men struggling with sex or porn addiction. Partners of addicts who have been hurt or betrayed can find hope and support in the Healing Way Phoenix Program."

Both programs are seven weeks in duration, trauma informed and include weekly individual therapy sessions. Beginnings is weekend-based, allowing professionals seeking help the ability to get the treatment they need while maintaining their livelihood. TARC participants who have completed the Beginnings program can undergo a Facilitated Therapeutic Disclosure with a partner enrolled in the Phoenix program at their discretion. Children of partners in the Phoenix Program under age 12 also receive support in the Children’s Therapeutic Playgroup.  
 
"Whether a person comes to us alone or with a mate, TARC therapists are here to help. No person or couple in Chattanooga has to struggle alone. Participation in Trauma and Addiction Recovery Center programs is fully confidential. Everyone’s journey toward healing will be supported by non-judgmental, skilled and compassionate TARC professionals," officials said.  "If you or someone you know is struggling with compulsive sexual behaviors or porn addiction, or is the partner of someone struggling with these addictions, we encourage you to seek help. You can call TARC at 423-269-7395 or visit www.TARCRECOVERY.com to obtain more information."

The Trauma and Addiction Recovery Center is located at 6727 Heritage Business Court Suite 718 in Chattanooga.
