Boundaries are a healthy, normal, and necessary part of the recovery process for sex addicts, intimacy anorexics, and their spouses. Implementing boundaries in a relationship may seem difficult, but with the proper tools and guidance, you can successfully introduce and implement boundaries in your relationship. In this DVD set, Dr. Doug Weiss provides an answer to the clarion call on boundaries by educating and guiding you through this process.
Disclosure is one of the most important topics in sexual addiction recovery. In this DVD, Dr. Weiss discusses the various types of disclosure. Each type of disclosure is for a specific purpose or person. This information can help the addict and the spouse navigate these often uncharted and misguided waters, saving the addict and the spouse from unnecessary pain or trauma. This DVD can expedite the understanding of each of the significant processes of disclosure for the addict, the spouse, and the marriage.
Pain For Love DVD
Pain For Love describes in detail one of the most insidious strategies of an intimacy anorexic with their spouse. Dr. Weiss exposes the intentionality of maintaining a pain exchange for a spouse to receive love from the intimacy anorexic. This dynamic is experienced by many who are married to an intimacy anorexic. This paradigm can empower the spouse and help them stop participating in a pain for love dynamic in their marriage.
Healing Her Heart After Relapse DVD
Relapse doesn’t have to occur, but if it happens, knowing how to navigate it intelligently can make a huge difference in a marriage. Each relapse impacts the wife significantly. This DVD is way more than, “He relapses, he does a consequence and moves on.” The addict is given real tools to address the emotional damage and repair of her heart as a result of a relapse.
Sin Of Withholding DVD
The Sin of Withholding is often undetected and not preached about, but it is responded to by God in a consistent and firm manner. This DVD is the first to address the Biblical foundation of the sin of withholding in believers’ hearts. The practical application in marriage addressing Intimacy Anorexia is also interwoven in this revelational teaching on the Sin of Withholding. Once a believer is free of this sin, their walk with the Lord and their fruit towards others can increase expediently.

What Our Clients Say:
"Not knowing what to expect, my husband and I were blown away by the caring, the detail and the plan to go forward, that we received after 3 intense days at Heart to Heart. I would recommend this center to ANYONE needing freedom and recovery for the many issues that come up in a marriage!"
"This intensive marked the first time I have been one hundred percent honest with myself, my wife and God about my addiction. The fact that I’m leaving with a concrete action plan with consequences for inaction or breaking any part of the plan gives me confidence that I will be able to succeed with God’s help."
- J.L., Colorado
"Before coming here I did not realize just how much I still needed to recover from everything. I learned so much from the sessions with Dr. Weiss and I feel like I’m now going home without the massive weight that I’ve been carrying around. I felt like we were coming here more for my husband and his issues but this week has unexpectedly been equally about me."
