Scripture Based Recovery
Forgiveness; 1 Kings 19:11
The whisper of forgiveness and God’s love for us is found through the movement and moments of patience and the ability to be seen. At Boulder Recovery our clients engage in daily hikes to the mountains to create their own space and place where they can start to listen to the whisper and healing power of God’s Grace.
Community; Matthew 18:20
There is power available when men gather in community to seek God. We at Boulder Recovery believe that building community is the best way to heal communities, families and men that have been struggling with sex addiction. Our intensives are able to that community to help men meet the needs of healing that past individual relationships cannot.
A person trying to break an addictive pattern at any given time may need multiple things at once: accountability, support, coping skills, insight, and hope. A one-on-one relationship may be able to provide a couple of these things, but a group can supply a new collective and reflective understanding of healing and hope through experience of the members.
Some of the greatest power we at Boulder Recovery have ever seen is a group of men gaining connection to God through their vulnerability and honestly admitting their relational brokenness. Having a safe, supportive and shame-free environment where honest sharing can take place and our men can start to see past their shame and self-doubt.
The closed group model at Boulder Recovery allows for the men to come in and engage for the first time in their lives in a truly venerable and intimate space within themselves and others.
Renewing of the Mind; Romans 12:2
You have the power to literally create a new brain to replace your old one. St. Paul knew this, and now neuroscience does.
Through stunning new technology, neuroscientists can actually support the transformational changes in how your thoughts, emotions, and choices register in the brain by a cascade of physical and energetic changes in the structure of its cells. They now affirm that how and where we focus our attention dictates the content of the brain structure we create. By choosing to focus our attention (mindfulness and prayer) on uplifting emotional content (positivity and hope).
It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick. I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners
.Mark 2:17 NIV
