Effective Treatment Options for Sex Addicts [208]

Although it’s gradually gaining acceptance as a legitimate psychological disorder, sex addiction is rarely discussed outside of specialized circles. This is due in no small part to the societal stigma many people attach to this affliction. When most people hear “sex addict,” they immediately think “pervert” or “deviant.” As a result, many sex addiction sufferers abstain from speaking openly about their condition. Instead of opening up about their struggles to close friends or family members, certain sex addicts allow their addictions to fester and consume them for years before seeking help.

As it the case with any addiction, the sooner treatment is sought out, the better the chances of recovery. Unfortunately, since sex addiction is seldom discussed and generally frowned upon, many sex addicts are unaware of just how many treatment options are out there. These days, there are nearly as many treatment options for sex addicts as there are for drug abusers and alcoholics. If you or someone you care about is currently trapped in the vice-grip of sex addiction, there’s no time like the present to educate yourself on the following treatment plans.

Group Therapy

Group therapy is best viewed as a complement to other treatment options instead of a substitute for them. Virtually every city and township has support groups for alcoholics and drug addicts, and in recent years, an increasing number of sex addiction support groups have sprung up across the country. These groups generally convene at churches, gymnasiums and community centers and are presided over by recovering addicts. When attending one of these meetings, you’ll be encouraged – but not required – to share your story. After hearing what you have to say, the other attendees will offer words of advice and encouragement. Of course, you’re free to do the same in response to other members’ stories. Depending on the group’s stance on sponsorship, one of the more senior members may offer to become your sponsor.

Individual Therapy

When it comes to overcoming sex addiction, one-on-one therapy is an absolute must. Regularly sitting down with a therapist who has experience dealing with sex addicts can set the stage for long-term success. In addition to helping you identify the root cause(s) of your addiction, a good therapist will provide you with insightful advice on how to rid yourself of sex addiction once and for all. When searching for the right therapist, look for someone who specializes in your particular affliction. In certain locales, sex addiction therapists can be difficult to come across, but Dallas area sex addicts can always find qualified professionals at Life Works Recovery.

Couples Healing

Sex addiction doesn’t just affect addicts – it can also have a profound impact on the people around them. If your addiction has created a rift between you and your partner, you both stand to benefit from couples healing therapy. These sessions are generally carried out by certified sex addiction therapists and, as the name implies, center on rebuilding relationships that have been damaged by sex addiction. Like group therapy, couples healing typically serve as an extension of one-on-one therapy sessions. In addition to showing your partner how much progress you’ve made, these sessions can save relationships that once seemed unsalvageable.

Even if the general public remains woefully under-informed about sex addiction, the number of treatment options available to those afflicted by it continues to increase. If you or a loved one is suffering from sex addiction, it’s important to realize that you’re not alone – and that you have options. Support groups, one-on-one counseling and couples healing sessions are sure to serve you well on the road to recovery.
