Sex Addiction Help: Why Choose Us?

The KeyStone Center Extended Care Unit (ECU), established in 1994, is one of the oldest sex addiction treatment centers in the country. We care for a broad range of problematic sexual behaviors in men, including internet and porn addictions, relationship addiction and intimacy disorders. Our facility is a sensitive, judgment-free environment where you can begin to heal. Men from all over the world turn to us for hope and a new start. We offer:

Expert Providers

Our sole focus is sex addiction, so you receive care from highly specialized therapists, physicians and coaches. You work with a team that includes certified sex addiction therapists (CSATs), trauma-informed art therapists and other dedicated providers.

Intensive Therapy

We offer a 30-day residential program and are one of the few centers to provide a full 7-day therapy schedule. You get the time and deep focus necessary to work through sex behavior disorders. The small size of our 16-bed rehabilitation facility and our 1:1 patient-provider ratio help ensure personalized care.

Trauma-focused Care

For many men addicted to sex, trauma is at the root of their disorder. We help you identify and process past abuse, neglect or rejection. This approach is highly effective for long-term recovery, even if you’ve relapsed after other inpatient or outpatient treatment programs.

Competitive Pricing

KeyStone Center ECU is one of the lowest-cost inpatient sexual addiction treatment centers available. Our self-pay package is often less expensive than the out-of-pocket costs associated with programs partially covered by insurance.

Evidence-based Therapies

Our comprehensive treatments include individual, group and family counseling. We also offer trauma-focused therapies such as art, drama and eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) for men addicted to sex.

Peer Support

Our all-male program and our sole focus on sex addiction mean you can feel comfortable sharing your story with men who face similar experiences. Group therapy offers camaraderie, accountability and community, without isolation.

Kind and Caring Support
“As a family member, this was such a difficult time in my life. Me and my partner’s treatment experience was kind and caring. My needs were understood and attended to at all points in the process. Our facilitator was skilled in running our sessions and I found her to be very supportive prior to, during and after our family program. My feelings were heard and validated at all times. I am so thankful that the KeyStone ECU staff was and continues to be there.”
