PODCAST SERIES: MALE PARTNER (OF FEMALE SEX/LOVE/PORN ADDICT) SUPPORT

CLICK HERE TO LISTEN NOW - Lacy Alajna Bentley and Hope Ray

Lacy writes: “The first track in an interview I did with Hope, that spurred a collaboration for the series on Male Partner Support. Women's pornography addiction is just starting to break through the stereotypes of male issues. With the new light being shed on female addiction, their partners are not far behind in seeking support and help in recovering the relationship and/or a semblance of control.

Topics covered include:
- This is not your fault
- How to know if she's really in recovery
- Triggers--yours and hers
- Your strengths in recovery
- Disclosure
- Boundaries
- What to do instead of punching the other guy
Plus a few laughs and a whole lot of "You can do this!"

THE ADDICTED MIND

Per Duane Osterlind, LMFT, CSAT: "The struggle of addiction comes with so much grief and loss. My early experience in rehab and the loss of my daughter has informed much of the work I do. I have worked in the addiction field now for over a decade. Helping people out of addiction has been how I give back. My hope is that The Addicted Mind podcast can become a part of that. I want people to find reliable information about addiction treatment and research. I want people to know that it gets better with the right support and knowledge." http://theaddictedmind.com/
