Support Groups

Sometimes a burden seems lighter when it is shared with others. Or another person might have a good suggestion for addressing and overcoming temptation. Support groups can be a great help in this respect, and they come in many different varieties - from ongoing weekly meetings to residential programs. 

 

Here are several of the better known ministries that offer them:

 

United States

  • The Restored Hope Network maintains a geographical listing of affiliate ministries and counselors that have undergone a rigorous screening and accountability process. Groups include ongoing meetings and residential treatment programs for same and opposite sex strugglers.

  • Desert Stream Ministries brings hope and the healing power of Jesus for sexual and relational issues like homosexuality, sexual addiction, sexual abuse and emotional dependency.

  • Celebrate Recovery is a Christ centered 12-step program "ministering to those who struggle with hurts, hang-ups, habits or addictions" of any kind. Not specifically dedicated to sexuality issues, most of the support groups do deal with them when they surface.
