Healing the Core Drivers of Addictive Thinking and Behaviors
5-Day Men's Intensive with Dr. Michael Barta personally guiding your healing

Dr. Barta created his 5-Day Men's Intensive to find and heal the underlying conditions that promote your sexually compulsive behaviors. He keeps his intensives small, taking only 8 men per month, to provide individualized care to each client.

Each Intensive is in-person and led only by Dr. Barta at his treatment facility in beautiful Colorado.

Dr. Barta explains in layman’s terms how the brain and autonomic system of the body adapt for safety as a response to past events that were painful.

Understanding the basics of how the brain and body work in tandem in response to developmental experiences that were less than nurturing is an effective way to heal the compensatory survival strategies that hold you hostage. Your developed behaviors stem from an inability to trust, and authentically connect with others.

What makes Dr. Barta's Treatment Different?

Old models of treatment (still primarily used today) will provide education on addiction, have clients do a couple groups per day and never really discover or discuss the primary reasons your addiction has occurred. Unfortunately, a majority of people’s time is spent in down time with no therapeutic facilitation. Dr. Barta's intensive provides therapeutic care 8 hours of face-to-face per day for 5 days. While the older models still focus on managing external behavioral techniques, Dr. Barta’s treatment focuses on healing the causes of the behaviors, so you are free to stop destructive sexual behaviors

What is Neurobiological Treatment?

Healing From the Inside Out

Sex addictions, pornography addictions, on-line social hook-ups, multiple infidelities, and compulsive sexual behaviors are rooted in trauma that can be effectively healed for good, allowing you to reclaim the authentic person you were born to be.

In 2014 Dr. Barta became the first person to actually use a fully neurobiological model to treat sex and pornography addictions in the treatment setting. He has expanded to include treatment for Compulsive Sexual Behavior Disorder (CSBD) a newly added diagnosis by the International Classification of Diseases (ICD) that is now recognized as a diagnosable medical and mental health issue.

Neurobiology focuses on healing the core brain and body systems instead of relying on external behavioral control as a means to keep the problematic sexual behavior contained. Barta’s expertise has shown that unless you heal the source, the addiction or compulsion will continue to come back either in the same behaviors or transfer to other destructive behaviors. Dr. Barta’s treatment returns you to a healthy state of functioning, allows you to reclaim your authentic self, and heal the damage to your relationships so you can finally have the ability to foster a deeply connected intimacy with the ones you love.

"I have found genuine hope"

I was suspicious that the intensive offered too much, but in reality, I learned more than I expected. I have found genuine hope. I now know and understand what caused my sexual behaviors, and I know it will take a lot of work to recover. I now know I can have a healthy existence from applying what I learned in the intensive.
