Sexual Addiction Statistics Video: Since 2007 FMM has presented a compilation of Sexual Addiction (SA) Statistics to convince the Christian community that SA was a problem both inside and outside the Church. This video is made for those not yet convinced. The younger generation doesn’t seem to need convincing… in their own words, “We know its a problem. What do we do about it?” This video allows Core Issue Addiction Recovery (CIAR) training participants to preview its content prior to their event and gives more time to discuss the origins of addiction and the LIFE Recovery Model’s Best Practices.  Click on this link for 2018 Research on Sexuality & the Church in America.
