Sex Addiction

Sex addict

Sometimes a person may wonder if they are a sex addict because they want sex more than their partner does or more than they or some else considers "normal". If you think you might be a sex addict you can ask yourself the following questions. Does your sexual activity—

  • Interfere with your other daily activities?
  • Interfere with your having healthy relationships?
  • Cause you problems at work?
  • Cost you large sums of money?
  • Get you in trouble with the law?
  • Cause you health problems?
  • Do you get irritable if you don't have sex?
  • Do you think about sex all the time?
  • Do you try do stop or cut back but can't?

Sex Addiction Treatment Can Help

We can help you develop the skills to better manage a sex addiction. The addictive thoughts and behaviors must be channeled into more appropriate, healthier activities.

  • How Your Sex Addiction Developed. Insight into how your own sex addiction developed can help you manage your sexual behavior better.
  • What Is Really Bothering You. Often sex is used as a way to temporarily fix another, deeper problem. Find and fix that other problem and sex will no longer be as important.
  • Cycle of Addiction. Understanding your own cycle of addiction—what each step in the cycle is and what triggers you to proceed to the next step—can help you break the cycle of addiction.
  • Cognitive Restructuring. By learning to think and talk about your sex addiction in terms of personal responsibility, you can learn to take control of your own behavior.
  • Healthy Sex. Sex is a normal, healthy part of life. You can learn new patterns of sexuality.
  • Behavior Modification. You must learn to replace addictive behaviors with more appropriate, healthier behaviors.
  • Relapse Prevention. By learning what situations you must avoid, you can learn how to take care of yourself without re-entering the addiction cycle.
