Technology has allowed us to access resources that we otherwise would not have access to. And it’s a beautiful blessing that we have and that we need to harness for good.Clay Olsen
Online resources for those struggling with pornography have some benefits, such as anonymity and being available to help at any time. This week, Crishelle and Creed talk with Clay Olsen (co-founder of Fight the New Drug) about Fortify, an app that helps one stay on track in their recovery.
In this episode:
- Fortify is not meant to replace therapy or 12 step programs, but enhance the experience.
- The recently-released redesign makes it easy to find support online.
- The program meets someone where they are in recovery.
- Small, incremental changes can have a profound impact on your ability to overcome the next challenge.
- Working towards healing is so unbelievably worth it.
