Sexual Addiction Treatment
Sex addiction can take many forms – online infidelity, seeking out prostitutes, pornography addiction – but the underlying issues are the same: they can’t or don’t know how to get their emotional needs met in healthier ways. The Internet has made it that much easier for those with compulsive sexual behavior to seek out ways to satisfy their compulsion. Eventually, compulsive sexual behavior has much the same consequences as any addictive behavior: damaged relationships, compromised health, and even financial and professional devastation.
