About Us

Our Business

Dr. W. Vernon Lee, Ph.D, CSAT

The SARP Program offers treatment to aid men in regaining their freedom from the disease of sexual addiction. Unlike recovering alcoholics who must abstain from drinking for life, sexual addicts are led back into a normal, healthy sex life much in the way those suffering from eating disorders must relearn healthy eating patterns. Most men are simultaneously treated for mood disturbance, anxiety or other addictions, such as chemical dependency. SARP also offers family counseling programs, support groups, and educational workshops for addicts and their families to help them understand the facets of belief and family like that are part of the addiction.
