At Kaizen Academy, we bring teens from self-destruction to self-esteem
treating compulsive pornography use, inappropriate sexual boundaries, and other sexual issues




Kaizen Academy


Kaizen Academy is about restoring & protecting sexual health and safety, and providing deeply needed hope and healing. Leading this cause, we provide intensive and comprehensive residential treatment for teenage boys who are struggling with inappropriate sexual behaviors.

We recognize the impact of these issues on the entire family, and offer proven therapy, listening ears, moral support, and healthy strategies in our parent work, family therapy, and throughout the entire treatment process.

Most sexual behavior problems are strongly related to – perhaps symptomatic of – a variety of emotional, behavioral, and mental health challenges that these young men are struggling with. Depression, anxiety, childhood trauma, attachment difficulties, feelings of low self-worth, social problems, executive function deficits, processing issues, Autism Spectrum Disorder – these are all common issues that, when coupled with concerning sexual obsessions or behavior, make a young man a good candidate for specialized residential treatment at Kaizen.

Beneath this challenging behavior lies a young man worthy of compassion, and desperately in need of help. We are a residential treatment center that has the profound belief that each boy can learn to live a healthier life by strengthening relationships, increasing awareness, becoming fully accountable, learning new skills, and developing both socially and emotionally. We have made it our life’s work to make a positive difference for these young men and their families.

There IS hope. There IS healing.

We assist boys between the age of 13 and 17
