The complicated issues of sexual addiction require multi-strategy approaches, available for both addict and spouse, in individual or couples sessions. Components of the therapy include:
- a thorough assessment
- neuropsychology testing to assess specific sexual dysfunctions and addictions
- processing issues such as denial, personal and relational turmoil
- treatment of the underlying causes of sexual addiction, impulse control and honest relationship to self and others
- coordination with local recovery groups
- set-up and implementation of a recovery plan
Treatment emphasizes education regarding the addictive cycle, rituals, rebuilding marital trust and understanding the path to recovery. It promotes honesty and hope through a frank, yet compassionate approach, to helping addicted persons relate constructively to self, others, the environment and our God.
