Guiding you from the bondage of pornography and sexual sin to freedom and the man 
God created you to be.

Objective:

 In Restoring God’s Foundation, we attack the roots of the problem. These roots are present in virtually every person that struggles with sinful porn or sexual behaviors. The course takes you through the personal experience of Road to Purity’s founder, Dann Aungst, his education as an addiction counselor, and his experience working with countless other men’s journey to overcome their porn addiction. 


On top of this, an infusion of Catholic Faith connects everything to build God’s foundation in your life.


Structure:

 Restoring God’s Foundation is structured into three-phases and 35 lessons,  gradually leading you through the process of personal growth, healing and freedom. 


We begin by treating this problem like any other serious trauma that sends a person to the Emergency Room. We need to get you stable first and out of the crisis. (ANY level of this behavior is a crisis as it endangers your mortal soul)


We do this by guiding you to address why your reading this now. Why do you want to stop looking at porn? Why you are interested in doing this program. (And by the way, if you are at all involved in porn use, you do need this program!). Then we teach you to use a set of tools like a master teaches an apprentice. We actually lead you through the process of making use of these tools, tools such as boundaries, strategies, and inventory of behavior, and so much more. 


About Road to Purity:

 Founded by Dann Aungst, Road to Purity leads men and women to the truth of authentic love and sexual purity and to help put an end to human sex trafficking. Road to Purity has helped thousands of men overcome their addiction and rebuild their relationship with God,

Author BIO

Dann is a Certified Addiction Counselor, speaker, author, and recovering sex addict. Dann has authored several books including From One Addict to Another, 40 Days to Freedom; Winning the Battle for Sexual Purity, and God’s Plan for Healthy Sexuality workshop. Dann also published the internationally distributed pamphlet 5 Keys to Freedom from sexual sin which was granted an imprimatur by Archbishop Samuel J. Aquila. Additionally, Dann does presentations to Seminarians on how to effectively address pornography in the confessional. 


Dann’s recovery was fueled by his personal drive for change, education about himself, the addiction, and restored relationship with Jesus Christ. 


Dann’s restored relationship with Jesus was so powerful that he felt personally called to devote his life to telling others that the profound emptiness, worthlessness, rejection, and abandonment felt by most addicts are not the truth of their identity in Christ and to help these men and women in this bondage of lies to find the truth, healing and authentic love in God and their personal relationships. Dann has answered the call through the mission of Road to Purity, a non-profit organization he founded in 2015.
