Addictions, like pornography, gambling, etc, can ruin lives, and not just your own. It can tear spouses, families and friends apart. 

Jerri Jorgensen, co-founder of Desert Solace  and Whitney Copeland, wife of a former addict stopped by Good Things Utah to talk about recovery. 

Desert Solace is a clinical, in-patient and immersive treatment program for those suffering from the affects of pornography addiction, other sexually related addictions, substance abuse, and more. It is designed for men 18 years old and older to seek recovery in an environment of compassion, empathy and hope.

If you are wondering, “is there hope” when dealing with addiction. Jorgensen says, “Yes! This is not about control, punishment or coercion. This is about boundaries and peace. This is a recovery process. It takes effort. This is joyous work because it restores trust and stability in the relationship.”

According to Jorgensen, women are also affected by their spouses addictions. If their spouse/significant other receives treatment, women can expect some/all of the following: 
– Recovery for the addict
– A detoxing of the brain
– Healing for the couple
– Unity for the family
– A future with trust in the relationship
