Partner Intensive Retreats
A Betrayal Trauma Retreat – Next Session Feb. 4 – 10, 2018
Partners of sex and pornography addicts deserve their own support as they work to heal themselves and/or their relationships. Unfortunately, however, partner healing usually takes a back seat as their sex and pornography addicted significant others dive into their own recovery, which demands attention from support systems and therapists. Restorations Therapy Center (RTC) recognizes this discrepancy and wants to close the gap.
The Restoration of Hope program is an intensive, partner retreat founded and directed by Honor Ashbaugh, MD, CSAT, CCPS and Michael Dinneen, LCSW, CSAT, CMAT. The Hope program is a 6-day retreat dedicated to the healing of female partners of sex and pornography addicts.
In our Hope program, partners suffering from betrayal trauma are invited to join our tranquil and safe community where they will find individual and group support, education and validation surrounding sex addiction and their own betrayal trauma. Partners in our program will also find a crucial community of other betrayed partners from which they can receive comfort and support. We know that connections are the antidote to trauma, and could think of no better environment for partners of sex addicts to heal.
In our 6-day program, you will participate in our meticulously designed programming aimed at jump starting your healing and helping you move forward. We’ll help you learn to trust your intuition again, rediscover your power, set healthy boundaries and begin the process of healing from your trauma.
Although you will be doing hard work reclaiming yourself, we guarantee that you will experience a new awakening and find the silver lining to what feels like an impossible situation.
The Restoration of Hope partner retreat includes multiple modalities aimed to help begin healing quickly from your betrayal trauma. First and foremost, our retreat fosters an element of community with other partners of sex addicts who understand exactly what you are experiencing. This connection, more than anything, fosters healing and recovery.
Our partner retreat experience includes room and board for 6 days and 6 nights in our Denver area residence. Partners will participate in group and individual therapy, equine therapy, art therapy and psychodrama. Psychoeducation of pertinent topics along with interactive experientials will help you better understand the essential elements of sex addiction, betrayal trauma, intimacy and connection, among other important topics.
Daily trauma focused yoga and mindfulness practices help keep you centered and grounded, and an introduction to trauma focused 12-step recovery will be introduced according to the POSA (partners of sex addicts) format.
You deserve your own support, and your healing will benefit not only you and your primary relationship, but your children, friends and family as well.
RTC believes that partners of sex and pornography addicts suffer from betrayal trauma, and we do not support the co-addiction model of partner therapy. Together with your therapists and peers, you will find a unique opportunity to heal unlike any other, and that this painful experience can lead to growth, empowerment, and hope.

You are not alone, and need support from others in the same situation. Groups provide a support system alongside therapy by a facilitator to propel you forward in your recovery.
When a relationship takes a hit, no matter who’s at fault, both partners have had to pay a price. Couples therapy provides a safe place to face the hurts and together work toward restoration.
We all have traumas in life, influencing us in many ways. Often traumas influence how we process events, blocking progress unless we receive the specific attention needed.
