Mentoring: the Fastest Way to Freedom from Sexual Addiction
If you or your loved one struggles with habitual sexual sin or sex addiction and you’re looking for lasting freedom, you’ve come to the right place. My name is Michael Leahy and I’m a recovering sex addict. I founded BraveHearts while in the midst of my own successful recovery from sexual addiction. My goal was simple: to help others like me experience freedom in Christ from sexual addiction, and to save lives, marriages and families in the process.
From World Stage to 1-on-1
Now, 16 years into recovery and 11 years into full-time ministry, I’ve been abundantly blessed and honored that God has chosen to leverage my redemptive life story to reach millions of people worldwide through five books, hundreds of live speaking events, and countless media appearances. But the greatest ministry success of all has only taken place over the past several years as I’ve been following an unexpected detour He placed in my path to pioneer a totally new, mentoring-centric approach to Christ-centered recovery that I call “sexual integrity discipleship.”
Mentoring for Men: Fewer Mistakes on a Direct Path to Freedom
In the process of pioneering this new, mentoring-centric approach to recovery, I’ve discovered that as I choose to make a hands-on, personal investment in helping a man in crisis, I’m actually able to help him accelerate the recovery process and shorten his recovery time by being his personal sherpa guide. In that way, I’m able to share with him my hard earned years of recovery and life experience and wisdom. It means he has the opportunity to take the most direct route to getting well and avoid making the same mistakes I and many others before him have made.
Mentoring for Spouses: Safety, Support & Encouragement
And now, hurting women and spouses of sexually addicted men can also benefit by have an experienced mentor by their side. My amazing wife Christine, a passionate warrior and advocate for hurting women everywhere, has joined forces with me to provide personal 1-on-1 and group mentoring care to women in crisis. Finally, hurting spouses and partners of sexually addicted men have a “safe person” they can turn to who will walk along side them on their own journey of healing and restoration.
The Results: True Freedom in Christ
While we’re always refining and improving the process, this new, mentoring-centric approach has led to some pretty amazing results in three short years. Here are just a few:
For those men who stuck with and completed the core one year mentoring program:
- 90% entered the program under serious threat of separation or divorce.
- 100% showed a dramatic improvement in their ability to resist sexual temptation.
- 100% had significant periods of sexual sobriety and finished the 1st year sober.
- 100% of the men reported improvements in their spouse and family relationships.
- 100% of the spouses or partners reported similar noticeable improvements.
- 100% of the married men who entered the program are still married today.
Compare this to long-term sexual sobriety rates of less than 15% for those using more traditional methods, like counseling, therapy, accountability partners, 12 step groups, and short-term intensive programs, and maybe you can start to understand why I’m so excited about this new mentoring-centric approach.
