If you or someone close to you is suffering from sex addiction, it’s only natural to wonder whether a cure for sexual addiction exists. While no cure exists, the addiction can be effectively treated and managed for life. If compulsive sexual behavior isn’t treated, the individual might experience intense guilt and eventually develop low self-esteem. This can ultimately lead to depression . Individuals who suffer from sexual addiction can also develop relationship and family problems. The potential also exists to become infected with sexually transmitted diseases or experience an unplanned pregnancy. Therapy is available, and it’s never too late to ask for help.

Or you can get details of support groups at the  Sex Addiction Help website . 

It is not about having a high sex drive, which in itself can be healthy, but rather engaging compulsively in sexual activity despite the serious negative consequences. These consequences may be on relationships, finances, risk to physical health through sexually transmitted diseases or legal sanction.  In such an addiction, sex stops the creation of healthy intimate relationships and intimacy is feared and avoided.

Words I hear from my patients are: loss of self-regard, despair, loneliness, frustration, guilt, anger, and self-hatred. I also hear my patients frequently rating their sexual behaviors as immoral, weird, disgusting actions that fill them with shame and self-contempt.

The Blazing Grace Men’s Group is an eight week course led by Tim Peterson , who is a counselor and pastor, that is part boot camp, part discipleship, and part adventure.
