Sex + Substances
Sex and substance use often intersect (PnP/parTy). Substances can make sex and intimacy seem more pleasurable. However, substances often interfere with experiencing sexual pleasure/intimacy and can negatively affect work, relationships, finances and health; leaving one feeling “out of control”.
Sexual Health + Recovery
The Sexual Health in Recovery (SHIR) program is designed to help those looking to explore sex and substances. SHIR is a combination of counseling and support services designed to help you reach your personal and recovery goals. The program’s emphasis is on finding balance in sexual pleasure and sexual safety.
Sex + Empowerment
You don’t have to go through this alone. Whether you are looking to start your recovery journey or simply want to talk to someone about sex and substances – we offer the following as part of the SHIR program, all with specialty Sexual Health + Recovery professionals:
- Individual Counseling/Therapy
- Substance Use Treatment (IOP/SOP)
- Outreach and Education
- Case Management
Visit our Become a Client page to download intake forms and begin your road to recovery + empowerment. Be sure to note that you are interested in the Sexual Health in Recovery program under “reason for seeking services.”
If you can answer yes to at least one of the questions below, you may be eligible to receive grant assistance to help cover part or all of the cost of therapy:
- Are you living with HIV?
- Are you uninsured?
- Do you make less than $40,000/year?
The Montrose Center affirms our clients’ sexuality and sexual behavior that is consensual, safe, and supports each individual’s desire to find their balance between sexual safety and sexual pleasure.
