The Addiction Nobody Will Talk About is a look at the state of pornography addition in today's world of the Internet. As noted therapist Tony Overbay has said, 'It's not a matter of if your child will be exposed to pornography, it's when.' Today, according to some studies, nearly one-third of all men 18-to-30 report having an issue with pornography, while 98% of married men between 18-and-40 have admitted to looking at porn online in the last six months. These are just some of the jaw-dropping statistics that seem to fly under the radar, and indicate we could have a major health crisis on your hands in the next couple of decades. Led by Joshua Shea, a former pornography addict and the author of The Addiction Nobody Will Talk About: How My Pornography Addiction Hurt People and Destroyed Relationships, this program can be specifically tailored for length or to focus on either Shea's individual story, or the larger world of pornography addiction.
