Parents, Church Leaders, Young Warriors:
The urgency to provide effecting training for the war against sexual addiction motivates us to send you this letter.
We hope this information will help with what Elder Holland encouraged in the October 2013 General Conference, “seek the advice of reputable people with certified training, professional skills and good values.”
If you have any young men who are struggling with morality issues, primarily pornography addiction and its related issues, we highly recommend you refer them to the Sons of Helaman program.
Sons of Helaman is a therapeutic training system specifically designed for LDS young men. It has become the most respected and most effective treatment program in Davis County, Utah and its neighboring areas for almost 10 years now. We offer both in-person and online groups so everyone is able to participate, no matter where they live.
Families and church leaders like using Sons of Helaman because it is more intense than the 12 steps support program and it is less expensive than individual therapy. They feel secure knowing that not only is the program scientifically sound, it is also spiritually sound.
Led by LDS gospel-centered professional clinicians, the young men are taught to use both temporal and spiritual weapons to win this war! Teaching tools are drawn primarily from the Book of Mormon and Latter-Day prophets.
Brief introduction video:
Sons of Helaman, is an in-person therapeutic group led by Master’s Degree Level Clinicians. Because there are many geographical regions currently requesting this service, in addition to the in-person training sessions, they are now available through a private/confidential webinar format, also lead by Masters Degree Level Clinicians.
Many valiant warriors use this long distance training (see “Choose Group” tab at www.SonsofHelaman.org for information on where and when the different groups are available.)
The need for in-person meetings is growing fast, so if you know of any quality clinicians in your area, please encourage them to contact us.
Demand has been so high for the Sons of Helaman program, three other branches have been created.
One group is called Men of Moroni. This is for adult and married men who are fighting the same addiction.
The need for similar training for young women (16-24) has also grown significantly. Daughters of Light has been created for them.
And Eternal Warriors, which is a prevention program that focuses on general self-mastery. Many proactive and motivated people are being trained by Eternal Warriors just to fine tune their personal development!
The core principles of all these programs are outlined in the book, Like Dragons Did They Fight.
Copies are available in paperback and eBook format.
For the sake of the young men in your area, please investigate the information provided in the links.

By the way, we do free firesides and 5th Sunday presentations. You can request a fireside in your area HERE.
