Who Does Day Seven Serve?
Day Seven Ministries offers professional, confidential, Christian counseling to men, women, couples, adolescents (over age 14), and families affected by sexual and relational brokenness issues.
What Is the Basis for Our Counseling?
Each counselor at Day Seven Ministries is a committed Christian who is equipped to integrate the Christian faith with psychotherapy techniques. We approach counseling from a solid Biblical perspective, because we believe that ultimate healing and true freedom comes through an active, growing relationship with Jesus Christ, and that this relationship affects change in all areas of life.
What Model Does Our Counseling Follow?
Although each counselor has a slightly different approach to the counseling process, our idea or theory can be described as:
- Biblically based and Christ-centered.
- Family systems.
- Modified 12-step emphasis and integration recovery model approach.
We adhere to clinical counseling guidelines through the American Counseling Association (ACA). We also strictly follow HIPAA guidelines.
What Types Of Issues Does Day Seven Address?
Our professional Christian counselors will address any issue related to sexuality, including:
- sexual addiction
- sexual abuse
- unwanted same-sex attraction
- gender confusion
- emotionally-dependent relationships
- promiscuous sexual relationships
- marital unfaithfulness
- and various other sexual relationships.
We also provide counseling for individuals who have a sexually addicted spouse and family members who have a loved one who struggles with a sexual issue.
Therapeutic Support Groups at Day Seven Ministries offer a place where people can talk about their struggles, find accountability, experience support, and receive helpful information which will aid them in their recovery. We believe that healing is facilitated through honesty within the context of safe relationships.
Day Seven Ministries groups meet weekly on Tuesday or Thursday evenings. Our experience is that best results come from a combination of individual counseling and group participation. An intake appointment is necessary prior to group participation in order to determine each potential participant’s needs.
We currently offer two types of groups:
Men’s Recovery for men who struggle with sexual addiction, pornography addiction, unwanted same-sex attraction or other sexual and relational issues.
- The goal of the Men’s Recovery Groups is to encourage a healthy, Christ-centered response to sexual brokenness. Ideally, we hope to support men to find a deeper identity in Christ within the context of a safe, confidential and respectful environment. We encourage men to take personal responsibility for their actions and to identify what they need in order to live a life of purity.
Wives’ Recovery for women whose spouses struggle with sexual brokenness issues.
- The goal of the Wives’ Recovery Groups is also to encourage a healthy, Christ-centered response to sexual brokenness. We believe that every committed relationship can be reconciled. However, we recognize that the journey is often a long and complex process which takes the response of both parties to work towards wholeness. Ideally, we hope to support both partners to find God’s heart for each during this time. At the same time, we understand that women must navigate their own emotional journey independent of their partner’s addiction and recovery.
Groups are currently available in Mechanicsburg and Lancaster. For more information or to schedule an intake in preparation for participating in a group, call the Day Seven Ministries office at (717) 735-0690 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
