You might find that seeking help for sex addiction is difficult because your addicted brain wants sexual stimulation and pleasure in much the same way a cocaine addict wants cocaine. Addiction tricks your brain into its “survival mode,” creating a biochemical reward mechanism to continue sexual behavior despite the harmful effects on loved ones and yourself.
The professional who evaluates you will consider three general things before determining the most appropriate type of treatment: the severity of the addiction, your motivation to change and available support from family or friends.
