Interactive Disorders
Persons with co-occurring disorders such as, chemical dependency, mood disorders such as bipolar disorder or post-traumatic stress disorder, and self-defeating behaviors are considered as long as sexual compulsivity is present.

Exclusionary Criteria
 

Unfortunately, we are not equipped to address certain conditions. Persons with severe head injury or mental retardation may not have the cognitive ability to keep the intense pace of our program’s group work. Case by case consideration is applied in these instances.
Persons with acute or chronic medical conditions that require skilled nursing care are encouraged to physically stabilize prior to entering treatment.

Finally, individuals who are destructive, aggressive or violent and unable to participate in group work with others are unlikely to benefit from our program.

The ECU is an open voluntary residential program that cannot accommodate individuals who require constant monitoring or a locked secure environment.
