I interview Forest Benedict, LMFT, SATP about how men in recovery from pornography and sexual addiction can care for themselves in long-term recovery. He teaches that men with addictions are “masters of self-neglect” and don’t have habits of taking good care of themselves. He is also in recovery himself and shares both his clinical and personal wisdom about how to build a strong self-care program. 

Forest Benedict, LMFT, SATP, is the author of the highly-acclaimed book Life After Lust: Stories & Strategies for Sex & Pornography Addiction Recovery. Forest uses online group therapy to guide sexually addicted individuals through recovery, serving all of California. He leads sexual addiction workshops and co-facilitates intensives with LifeSTAR Sacramento. Forest is the Program Coordinator of the Sexual Addiction Treatment Provider program at Mid-America Nazarene University, training therapists to do sexual addiction work. He is a husband and father who is in recovery. To work with Forest, email him at fo****@fo************.com. Check out his website https://forestbenedict.com for additional recovery related resources.
