Pornography Awareness, Truth, and Healing
The Archdiocese of Omaha Pornography Awareness Truth and Healing (PATH) resources have been in development since 2017. At that time, few national resources were available. Since that time, many resources have become available. Clergy and mental health professionals have received additional training in this area, to the extent that finding pastoral and mental health support is now generally uncomplicated.
Online resources are now plentiful. Providers such as Matt Fradd, Jason Evert, Matt Dobschuetz, SA, "The Daily Reprieve Podcast", and others are easily available. As such, archdiocesan staff no longer seeks to duplicate these good efforts.
Since 2017, the Men’s Support and Accountability Groups in Omaha and Cedar County have met and continue to meet. The weekly support groups are for men who want to live chaste lives free from pornography and masturbation. Men interested in attending an urban group should call 402.557.5664 and leave a message. The group facilitator is the sole retriever of messages and will return your call within 48 hours. The group meets in Omaha. Men interested in attending the Cedar County rural group should call 402.557.5694 and leave a message. The group facilitator is the sole retriever of messages and will return your call within 48 hours.

2016 PATH Survey
In 2016, PATH conducted a survey on technology usage in families. There were 851 parents and 4,854 students (grades 2 through 12) surveyed. Parish schools and religious education programs were participated in this project. This data is no longer current, but the historical snapshot is still useful insofar as electronic usage has only increased since 2016.
