“Sexual Health: A New Ally for Improving Drug and Alcohol Treatment” by Douglas Braun-Harvey, MFT

While great strides have been made in treating women and men suffering from addiction, their sexuality is too often marginalized. Keeping sexuality away from a central focus of recovery for the large number of addicts with sex/drug-linked patterns of combining crystal meth, cocaine, alcohol and club drugs with sexual relations leads to treatment failure, relapse, and untold costs in the lives of addicts and their families. Sexual Health in Drug and Alcohol Treatment is an evidence-based intervention for all treatment settings, approaches, and clientele. The psycho-educational group curriculum is designed to increase client retention, identify sexual thoughts and feelings associated with increasing or decreasing risk of relapse and reduce sex/drug-linked shame—a common cause of relapse.
