Treatment for

Sexually Compulsive Behavior

  • Are you spending more time on the computer, to the detriment of your marriage, family, or career?
  • Do you hide from your spouse or partner the amount of time you spend on the computer on sex related sites?
  • Have you tried (unsuccessfully) to cut down on the amount of time you spend on sex related Internet sites?
  • Have you found yourself searching for more and more “unusual” sites?
  • Do you spend more than 11 hours a week on online sexual pursuits?

If you answered "yes" to any of these questions, you may have a problem with online sexual compulsion.

Many people spend time on the computer on Internet sexual sites, and are able to do so without negative consequences to themselves, their marriage or their career. For others, however, their “addictions” to Internet pornography can have disastrous effects as they find themselves getting caught up in the myriad of sexual opportunities online. These individuals may find the amount of time they spend on the Internet on sex related sites increasing to a level that quickly gets “out of control”. They may experience guilt, shame, hopelessness and depression as they attempt, unsuccessfully, to stop their behavior on their own. Relationships suffer, work productivity decreases and use of other addictive chemicals may increase. They may desperately want to seek services, but they have no idea where to start, and are paralyzed by the fear of what treatment will be like.

If this sounds like you, or someone you care about, there is help out there.
