How long does recovery take?

REDMINUTE No. 14

Dr. Steven Lytle from Sparrow House Counseling answers the question “How long does recovery take?”

Recovery looks different for everyone, but chances are, if you have been viewing porn for a long time, recovery isn’t just a weekend conference or a one time counselling session. Recovery is a process that takes time. Going to counsellors and meeting with professionals can be the beginning of that process but it is a life long commitment. Many times it takes up to seven years for someone to start feeling a lessening of the desire to act out sexually.

It isn’t just a one time fix, it is a lifestyle change.

You can find a listing of counsellors on our help page.
