Questions About Fortify
Is Fortify Right For Me?
This is a great question to be asking yourself. It is important to know and understand that there are levels and degrees of pornography addiction. Some of you are dealing with an addiction that makes it difficult to have a relationship, be social, or even leave the house. While there are others who feel like it is is just a bad habit or something they want stop before they lose control and wind up ruining their relationships, social life, or worse. Basically, what we are saying is everyone who is looking for help from the Fortify Program has a different story and different needs with regard to their porn use. We may get some applicants who apply to the program because they are looking at porn a few times a year, others who look a few times a month or week, and many who feel compelled to look at pornography a few times a day just to feel normal.
Even with these vast differences and degrees of pornography use, the Fortify Program uses the blanket term of addiction to describe compulsive pornography use. So wherever you may land on that spectrum the Fortify Program will be helpful to you as you begin your process of recovery. No one but you can determine how deep your trench is, and committing to completing this program will assist you as you work toward lasting change.
Let's talk a little bit about your expectations. Ask yourself, Why am I here? What do I hope to gain from this program? What am I willing to sacrifice to rid my life of pornography for good? Your answers to these questions will help determine how successful you will be in this program. Just as everyone's level of addiction is different, everyone's recovery will be different. The Fortify Program is largely self directed. Your commitment to and application of what you learn is vital to your success. If you think coming here and just watching some videos will fix all your problems, guess again. This is going to take work, and if you are committed to it, so are we.

Does Fortify require parental permission?
The creators of the Fortify program recognize the shame and taboos associated with pornography use at any age. We are also aware that as the average age of exposure decreases the need for education, services, and intervention increases, but that hasn’t made it any less easy to request help. In order to provide this service to varying age ranges, we require that all Fortify program participants be at least 13 years of age or over, the youngest age permitted to provide services to individuals without parental permission, as detailed by the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA).

What is pornography addiction?
The simple definition of addiction is being unable to stop a behavior even when you experience negative consequences and sincerely want to stop. For the use in this program the term PORNOGRAPHY ADDICTION is used more broadly to cover any unwanted behaviors resulting from pornography use. That could mean something different for everyone. For example, some might be dealing with a bad habit while others are dealing with an extreme process addiction. Regardless of where one might be, the Fortify Program was created to allow individuals to take a step closer toward long-lasting recovery.
