Announcement icon During the Covid Crisis I continue to accept new clients; services offered will be structured to meet clients needs & are Hipaa compliant.
Is addiction is complicating your life? And your busy career, family and lifestyle won’t give you time to get better? We will help you to regain control of your chaos, reset your roadmap and get you back on track. We can also help when your life is affected by someone else’s addiction. We are evidence-based, confidential and effective.
I am certified to manage alcohol, drug and behaviour/process addictions such as shopping, sex, gambling and gaming. My clients are professionals, in safety-sensitive environments and watched by regulatory bodies: doctors, dentists, lawyers, law enforcement, pilots. And people like you. Our outpatient program is tailored to meet your needs and your schedule.
Getting help is hard, but continuing in this way is harder. Our individualized treatment program will help you regain control of your life and return to health and healthy relationships. You don’t have to solve this alone. Let’s talk for 20 minutes, no charge, to see if our program will work for you.

David A Burns's Groups

Sex Addiction Recovery Group

Certified Sex Addiction Therapist Groups and Individual Therapy; each person's treatment plan is specific to that person and individualized. With the help of the therapist(s), a healthy sex plan that discourages problematic behaviors and encourages healthy behaviors is developed. It is important for individuals in recovery to have a system of accountability and support to make their recovery successful. Our treatment includes reducing shame and developing a culture of support through our CSAT care group.
