Therapeutic Approach to the Treatment of Sex Addiction

Sexual Recovery Services (SRS) is a team of clinically trained specialists, several of whom are Nationally Certified Sex Addiction Therapists, are prepared to treat a broad range of problems related to sexually addictive behavior.  Discriminating between issues of poor decisions, boundary problems, sexual compulsivity, and sexual deviancy is our initial challenge.

For those with sexual compulsivity issues, it is not the specific sexual behavior that is the problem, but the urge to engage in it, and the inability to successfully intervene on that urge. This understanding is paramount to successful sex addiction treatment.

Sex addiction treatment plans may include the interplay between clinical depression, anxiety disorders, obsessive-compulsive behavior or bi-polar disorders. The use of hypnotherapy, art therapy, EMDR and Lifespan Integration as clinically indicated. A medication assessment may be recommended.

Group therapy is the preferred treatment modality at SRS. Click Here to learn more about the basis for our group process. Individual therapy is offered separately as an adjunct to group treatment when appropriate.  ​
