What is Sex Addiction?
Sex and pornography addictions are real and incredibly painful, not just for the one engaging in the behaviors, but for the wives, the partners and the families as well.
Sex and pornography addictions are the symptoms of a core problem. Most treatment centers focus only on the symptoms and behaviors, providing you with a dry out period and a bag of tools. While helpful for a while, participants at these programs have a hard time really stay free from their addictive sexual behaviors.
Sex and pornography addiction effects and estimated three to five percent of the U.S. population. We know from our work these numbers are much higher. These low numbers are done through self-report, and nobody I have worked with wants to say they are a sex or porn addict. In 2016, Utah passed legislation to deem pornography a public health crisis, and in time many more will follow.
Sexual Addiction is a process addiction, meaning the user changes their mood by engaging in a behavior, while a substance addiction changes the users’ mood by ingesting a substance such as drugs or alcohol. Sex and pornography addiction is much harder to treat and MUST be treated by a specialist.
Many too, come to us after attempting to stop their destructive behaviors, but can never maintain lasting sobriety and recovery. At CSRC we know the reason you haven't been successful in past attempts to stop is because you never got to the root cause of the problem. CSRC focuses on the HOW and the WHY you became an addict, and we treat the core so the behaviors can finally stop for good.
