New Beginning Ranch

New Beginning Ranch, in Corvallis MT, has been founded for men continuing their journey of sexual addiction recovery following inpatient treatment or intense therapy, while providing a safe, comfortable and focused experience.

We understand the difficulties this journey of sexual sobriety entails…facing and surrendering to the reality of this addiction, the significant consequences, looking and searching within ourselves for our core issues, unmasking and sharing our secrets, processing the profound shame, doing a full disclosure if appropriate. These are difficult, courageous efforts that leave many men feeling overwhelmed leaving treatment.

These men will benefit from New Beginning Ranch where they can process and integrate their new found information and insight to make a better transition back to their home lives. It takes time to integrate this new information to insure a more stable and successful change transition. 

We use Dr. Carnes task model for continuity and stability. We also utilize an Equine Program to help our men achieve a more permanent recovery.

We also believe strongly in the healing power of engaging nature as part of the recovery process.

The Rocky Mountain surroundings provide an outstanding environment to experience nature in walks, hikes, fly fishing, hunting, equine work, horsemanship, skiing and golf. We believe nature is critical to sex addict men; getting them outside to experience a sense of awe, grounding and communion with their Higher Power.

Nature provides the grandiose, immature aspects of the sex addict a pathway through fear to courage and grandiosity to humility in the presence of her power.

Sex Addiction: Signs, Symptoms, and Treatment. By Sherry Amatenstein ~ Pyscom.net

Sam squirmed uncomfortably in his chair, finding it difficult to look in my eyes as he talked about his porn habit, which in the past few months had overtaken his life. “I’ve been watching porn since I’m 11,” he admitted. “But it used to be somewhat under control. Now I’m sneaking into the men’s room at work with my phone for hours at a time. When my wife is sleeping I’m online. I just can’t stop.”

Sam is beginning to realize he is a sex addict. That term began receiving renewed scrutiny last fall when former film producer Harvey Weinstein declared that was what ailed him and entered rehab in an effort to ...Read more....


Hypersexuality (Sex Addiction). Psychology Today

Hypersexual disorder is a proposed diagnosis for people who have an "excessive" amount of sex and feel distress as a result. There is debate, however, over whether sex addiction exists in the same way as other addictions.

In Western psychiatry, "excessive" sexual behaviors have been documented since the 1700s and have been referred to as Don Juanism, satyriasis, nymphomania, excessive sexual drive, sexual addiction, and hypersexuality, among other things. These terms all refer to sexual behavior that includes... Read more...


Sexual addiction: insights from psychoanalysis and functional neuroimaging. By Vincent Estellon, PhD and Harold Mouras, PhD

Sexual motivation is a fundamental behavior in human. For a long time, this behavior has been somehow ignored from psychological and neuroscientific research. In this article – reflecting the collaboration of a clinical psychologist and a neuroscientist – we show that in the current period, sexual affiliation is one of the most promising affiliation context to articulate a debate, a dialog and convergence points between psychoanalysis and neuroscience. Recent data on healthy sexual behavior and its compulsive variant are... Read more...


Understanding More about Sexual Addiction. By  Michael Herkov, Ph.D

In a culture obsessed with sex, it might seem surprising that we don’t hear more about sex addiction. While there is plenty of information for people addicted to alcohol, drugs and gambling, those addicted to sex are likely to find help and information more difficult to come by. Part of the reason for this is that sex addiction, a disorder characterized by compulsive sexual thoughts and behavior, is poorly understood and difficult to diagnose. And, in a culture where sex, like alcohol, is socially acceptable and encouraged, and sexual images and provocation abound, it becomes more challenging to distinguish between... Read more...

Sex Addiction: An Intimacy Disorder. By Rachel Pomerance Berl

THERE'S SOMETHING ABOUT sex addiction that not only raises eyebrows but also furrows them. "Oh, c'mon," people tend to say about a supposed sex addict. "Can't he just control himself?" The recently released movie "Thanks for Sharing" frames the subject accordingly. When Gwyneth Paltrow's character learns her beau, played by Mark Ruffalo, is a recovering sex addict, she voices the predictable doubt and bewilderment: "Isn't that something that guys just say when they get caught cheating?" Judging by the..... Read more....
