Specialized Trained Sex Addiction Counselors
Our counselors have received specialized training in treating sexual addiction, support for the spouse/partner of sex addicts, and relational healing. Our therapists have spent the time as professionals learning, training and helping men and women gain understanding and healing of their sexual wounded self, which is the foundation of healing the relationship and solving difficult intimacy issues.
Sex And Pornography Can Become Addictive
The main issue of sexual addiction is not the need for more sex, rather, it is to control and avoid pain. This is similar to how an alcoholic or drug addict uses alcohol or drugs to avoid their pain. Porn/sex has a powerful affect upon the chemicals in the brain. When a person views porn, it releases chemicals that numb stress, anxiety, painful feelings, and provides an escape from real life issues. Over time, the brain begins to rely upon the sex as a solution rather than facing the real issues
Four Symptoms of Addiction:
- Inability to stop.
- Tendency to get angry when denied sex or porn.
- Secretive about the sexual behaviors
- Continue to pursue sex or porn despite negative consequences
To recover from sexual addiction, you will need to work recovery. We have developed the following tasks as a beginning to your work. The tasks will only work, if you work them. Recovering from sex addiction is a change of direction.
Underlying Relationship Wounds
We believe that the real issue of sexual addiction is not the need for more sex but rather it is used to numb, medicate, and escape past trauma and relationship wounds. Therefore, we don’t just provide tools for stopping the addictive behaviors but we also help the sex addict look at past hurts that often go back to childhood. Our counselors are trained in several trauma therapies to help work through and desensitize trauma.
