The Psychologists

Clinical Psychologists and Marriage and Family Therapists provide practical tools for dealing with environmental triggers, emotional triggers, self-care, self-image and damaged relationships. Our professionals in this area develop content and dynamic tools that identify, prescribe action for and track the effectiveness of factors important to overcoming pornography addiction.

Psychology is at the interface between society and the individual and can have profound effects upon the transition back to the life you want to live.

Neuroscience

Habits, addictions and compulsions affect various parts of the brain differently. Knowing how to work with these areas of the brain through neurocognitive exercises is part of the reason neuroscience is so important to Candeo. Another reason is that because psychology works primarily with the mind and because we assume the mind to be instantly malleable, psychology alone can not set realistic expectations. Neuroscience reminds us that in addiction we’re working with the brain and brains are physical objects that change their structure slowly over time as they’re exposed to new experiences.

Therefore, the occasional one-to-one or group session is not going to bring the lasting change we all desire. Cultivating daily experiences that provide the brain a chance to change are what will drive the long-term success of behavior change. But what should these experiences be like? That’s where neuroscientists and psychologists get together and build out the optimal experience. Of course, daily structured experiences were not possible until technology became sufficiently dynamic so as to encourage, scaffold and initiate the most constructive experiences. That’s why another missing piece is-

Technology and Design

Why not just take what psychologists and neuroscientists have learned over the years and write it up in a book? Books can be a great way to get the information and message out, but our world-class professionals were the first to realize that information alone does not change behavior and that structural changes were needed to the systems of recovery and mental healthcare.

This is where technologists and designers come in. Creating engaging, motivational and intuitive platforms that work with our senses is a key ingredient missing in other behavior change programs. Context-based interactions are the key to driving recovery and the ubiquitous nature of technology finally makes this possible. User experience, user interface, graphical and instructional design help to ensure that using the system is dynamic and fun and that is it constructed for maximal learning and practical efficacy.

Coaching

They are not life coaches. Not therapists. Just people who know a lot about the recovery program and many of whom have been through recovery themselves. It’s important to have this kind of personal connection and support from someone who has been where you are and who know the ins and outs of the change platform. Each coach has worked with hundreds, in some cases thousands, of individuals during their time with Candeo and they know that there are important similarities and differences in each person’s change process.

Your coach brings the program to life by getting to know you, sending you updates, inspirational messages and helping you tailor the program to your own needs. If you’re worried that you’re applying the principles of the program incorrectly, your coach can help you refine your approach. Finally, if additional resources are needed in your particular instance the coach can help you identify them and give you suggestions for what to do.

Full Service. Full Savings

The Candeo innovation is to provide the kind of comprehensive care described above for the price of a couple books or a handful of DVDs. But this wasn’t enough. We also wanted to keep the experience a very personal and tailored one for the best outcomes. No chatter bots, no artificial intelligence algorithms, just caring individuals trying to help as many people as possible. Hats off to our dedicated professionals and design teams!
