Sexual Addiction Control

Traditionally, the mainstay treatments for such addictions have been cognitive behavioral therapy with assistance from medications such as SSRI (Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors). However, there has been a recent discovery of holistic and natural methods of therapy that emphasizes returning balance to the individual. Ways by which destructive patterns of behavior are replaced with healthier, positive and satisfying ones are found and reinforced so that the necessity to rely on ill-patterned sexual behaviors no longer becomes a sole source of satisfaction.
In addition to holistic and behavioral therapies, lifestyle modifications such as diet and exercise should also be emphasized. Healthy lifestyle practices and behaviors such as healthy eating choices, managing and maintaining healthy social, family and work relationships as well as keeping physically fit are all essential components in helping any behavioral modification regimen be successful.
Social support is important, and often help is readily available. It is important find and address the root of the problem while addressing the manifesting symptoms. If you or someone you know may be suffering from sexual addiction, please consult your primary care physician or a psychologist with your concerns.
