Recovery Ministry for Men and Their Partners

I have helped hundreds of Sex Addicts develop and maintain real recovery.
My program is simple but proven to be extremely effective to Sex Addicts of all types.
You are not alone.
With over 30 years of personal recovery I live the solution I am blessed to teach others.
“Then the devil left him, and behold, angels came and were ministering to him.”
Matthew 4:11

My program consists of three basic but powerful concepts:

• Accountability. Using structured, repeated contact we identify triggers, develop tactical survival tools, improve interpersonal skills and provide planning and monitoring of daily activities focused on sobriety. [more]

• New Habits. The addict, now free from lost time previously spent acting out, learns healthy time management and carries out a well-developed recovery program on a daily basis. [more]

• Consequences. Creating a safe environment where emotional and behavioral honesty and disclosure for slips, lapses and relapses to The Coach is essential. [more]

“I have known Murray for nearly ten years. I have heard him speak to groups and successfully counsel individuals and couples that suffer from the devastating effects of sex and porn addiction. His knowledge, experience, spiritual foundation and caring nature have enabled Murray to bring healing to many, often when hope is lost. I highly recommend Murray as a trusted practitioner in this very needed service. Murray has a powerful message that bears witness to the power of faith based recovery.”

Porn is the #1 sex addiction. The obsession and compulsion makes you helpless to stop. You develop self-loathing and feelings of worthlessness. Real relationships are impossible.

Escorts, internet hook-ups and affairs create crushing shame. The lies and deceit become a way of life that exhausts you. The fear of discovery distorts your world. You fear you are going insane.

Discovery of your addiction brings devastating heartbreak. Your worst fear is losing her but you are powerless to stop. You would do anything to stop the madness but don’t know how.

Your obsession to find, meet and seduce women is relentless. Phone apps make it easy to maintain the chase while wasting time, energy and countless dollars. She suspects your infidelity but you deny, deny, deny.

As your addiction progresses you cross boundaries and engage in activities you used to find disgusting. You lie to yourself and everyone else about your time and spending habits. You start to confuse truth with lies.

Wives and children are verbally and emotionally abused. You see yourself as a victim of life’s unfairness. You think you deserve to act out. Your addiction is consuming you. You no longer have a family. You have hostages.

“I talked to family counselors and pastors, but no one understood my situation with addiction to sex and porn and how to help like Murray.”

“When Murray and Betsy met with Kate and me we felt we had found a unique resource. Murray and Betsy are trained professionals but in recovery themselves. Together we improved our marriage that was so devastated by sex addiction.”

“After a year of attempts at sobriety, I thought I would have to accept the fact that I was a Sex Addict that could never stay sober. Murray worked with me by setting up a daily accountability program that kept me from continuous relapses. Today I have nine months of sobriety, and I believe I can start to recover from this horrible disease.”

“After several years of failed attempts to get sober from sex and porn addiction I knew I needed more help and the 12-Step programs. Murray provided me accountability, education and set a daily routine that kept me out of trouble. I just celebrated two years and I owe it to my faith, the SAA 12-steps and Murray’s day to day guidance on how to get and stay sober.”

“I have known Murray for almost 25 years. His wisdom and ability to connect with addicts has made him someone people trust. He is a very spiritual person and that helps people understand that it takes more than 12-Step meetings and hope to create a real spiritual awakening.”

Mark H

Naperville, IL

“Murray has been a guide for me in my recovery from Sex Addiction. I spent 60 days at a world-class treatment center for Sex Addiction and relapsed two weeks after I got home. Murray helped me translate what I had learned into a program for day to day living.”

“At first I didn’t know how to apply the 12-Steps of SAA into my day to day sobriety. Murray and I worked together, and I did quite a bit of writing along with local meetings and daily calls to him. I now know what it means to grow myself up emotionally. Life is so much easier once you understand the triggers of your Sex Addiction.”
