This workbook is a biblically-based, time-tested, effective tool in assisting spouses to recover from their partner’s sexual addiction – whether the addict is in recovery or not.

While the workbook is easy enough to follow alone, it is highly recommended that it be used in conjunction with a Captives Free support group. By participating in a group, one enters a safe environment of others on the same journey creating a support structure.

Some moments are clear and full of hope and light. Then just as suddenly, overwhelming feelings of despair and darkness overtake you. Then there is the anxiety. Everything in your life has shifted, and although you know in your head that some changes are good, there is a part of your heart that declines to agree. It is that part of your soul that scares you the most. It begs for relief, begs for the numbness you have known so well, when for a few brief moments you don’t feel anything at all—the illusion of peace. We come to an opportunity to entrust our hearts to the Healer for a deeper journey into recovery—a journey of grieving. Grief is defined as a blending of reactions that include emotional, physical, behavioral, cognitive and spiritual. God our Healer is good and faithful and gentle, but He does not use anesthesia to help us cope with the blend of reactions. The journey of healing can be painful—sometimes agonizing. It will take more courage than you believe you have. The good news is that you will not be alone. Even better news is that on the other side of grieving is the real and lasting peace your soul has craved all along. The very best news is that this journey will one day give you the chance to be part of something bigger than yourself—a chance to bless others, a chance to make a difference in this very broken world. Are You Ready? The easiest way to help you grasp this readiness concept is to use the metaphor of a three legged table. You, metaphorically are the table top. The legs supporting it must be used and are necessary to ensure that the table top is held up. Grieving is necessary for the deeper journey of recovery. In order to grieve well and to grieve safely, three things must be true about your life right now: Leg number 1: You must be sober. Leg number 2: You must be surrendered to the grieving process. Leg Number 3: You must have support. This guide will help you start your journey of addiction recovery, help you get back on the path of your abandoned addiction recovery program, or help you, help someone that has come to your for help with their addiction.
