Pornography is not only addictive it causes many problems in a person's personal life.

STRIVE is a recovery program developed by Matt Fradd, who tells OneNewsNow that numerous studies dating back 40 years conclude pornography harms the user, his relationships, and society as a whole.

“So right now, if you want one example of one of the negative consequences,” he says, “there are over 40 neuroscience-based studies on porn users and all of them lend strong support to the addiction model.”

The STRIVE program offers a step-by-step approach requiring participants to view a short daily video, commit to a personal challenge, and communicate with thousands of people in the program in order to provide accountability.

Even though it is Christian-based, anyone can use it.

“You know, some things can only be healed by the antiseptic light of truth,” Fradd says. “Porn use is one of those things.”

Many churches are using the program -- which is available at no charge -- to help people break free from pornography and heal the wounds caused by addiction.
