Sexual addiction refers to a condition in which a sufferer cannot gain control over his or her sexual thoughts and/or activities. Persons suffering from sex addiction spend an inordinate amount of time thinking about, planning, and participating in sexual activities, often to the detriment of their work and personal life. If you are preoccupied by thoughts of sex, unable to control your sexual behaviors, or engaged in risky sexual activity, you may be suffering from sex addiction. Fortunately, help is available—and it begins by learning the nature and underlying issues of sexual addiction.

It is extremely difficult to maintain a relationship with a sex addict, and it takes patience, commitment, and complete honesty to heal a relationship from sex addiction. If you or your partner has been diagnosed with a sex addiction, recovering your relationship will require healing of both parties. Counseling is an excellent way to navigate the recovery process; in the safe space of the therapy room, you and your partner can explore the reasons for the sex addiction and discuss strategies for healing.

As with all types of addiction, sexual addiction is usually a manifestation of a deeper problem that needs to be addressed. Healing from sexual addiction requires probing your deepest self and uncovering the root cause of the problem. A qualified and compassionate Christian counselor can help you discern the driving force of your sexual thoughts and behaviors, and he or she can also help you foster healthier habits. Whereas treatment programs for other types of addiction (such as drug or alcohol) promote total abstinence, sexual addiction therapy focuses on changing behavior.
