Sex addiction help

So I’ve googled sex addiction, and it just gives me information about what it is. Nothing really about how to treat it.
I’ve made an appointment with my old Clinical Social worker/ psychiatrist this week to ask about it. Was wondering is this the way to go? Or Should I call 811? Is it like NA & AA where you just sit in a few meetings?
I’m a recovering drug addict, clean of coke and meth for 2.5 years and proud.i have a family and my life back, But when I got sober my therapist told me I was showing signs of compulsive sexual behaviour and I just ignored it and didn’t take it seriously, and stopped seeing her because I thought that honestly was a joke.. But it’s out of hand now and my husband intervened after a full week of me having multiple partners for money, and just not coming home. and is begging me to seek treatment because it is breaking apart our family. I’m 22. Was apart of sex trafficking when I was 16 til I was 19. I’ve had more partners than I’d ever admit to.
I just want help. Please.

    Well the first step is you are aware, the next step is seeking out help if you can’t do it yourself , and then sticking with it , if one thing isn’t working try another and never give up , that’s what I’ve done and I’m very happy and comfortable with who I am now

    Congratulations on acknowledging that you have a problem! Now to get the help. There is a great group called Smart Recovery they deal with lots of addictions. A phone call to the director of the group would let you know if he or she felt like the group would be able to help. Most definitely continue with counciling. Good luck! Keep your head high. You can put your past behind you and heal.

    I think the alano club on 124th Street has sex addicts anonymous meetings.

  4. April Ann yes! Go back to that therapist. No shame in admitting that person was right. Seems like you had a good therapist that was tuned to you.

  5. I’d say the therapist that initially made the observation is the best place to start

  6. This is a common problem with addictions. When you clean up one, but don’t get to the root problem it will manifest in other addictions. Please seek the help of a therapist who specializes in addictions. Meetings will help but ultimately you need to get to the root and deal with the issues. Good luck, it can be done.

    Go to a born again Christian church and or you can phone them , look up places on pc, evangelical churches, ask them to pray for you , tell them your problem and they will get that demon out in Jesus powerful name , it may take awhile but you will be set free in Jesus name , no demon can stand the name of Jesus, you need deliverance

    Im sorry for your situation… God bless your difficult journey. I have never even known anyone in sex trafficking i cant imagine the suffering you went through. No child should be ripped of their childhood or teenage years like that. I woyld talk to the therapist who recognized it. Or seek help from another therapistbor other outlets. Look up government programs maybe? Maybe theres programs to aide recovering sex trafficked individuals. Best of luck and remember life can and will get easier, keep moving forward and never give up on improving yourself and your surroundings! ❤

      Josh Bauer and I would say you are grossly misinformed on the matter. There are many compulsive disorders , including a compulsive sexual disorder , or which is more commonly known as a sexual addiction.

    Impulse Control Disorder is evidenced by such things as impulsive spending; risky sexual behavior; combative and assaultive behaviors; substance abuse; recklessness and excessive risk-taking; gambling; and binge eating. The Antisocial Personality Disorder provides a prime example of these problems with impulse control.

  14. I used to work for a counsellor (in another province) that was a CSAT: Certified Sex Addiction Therapist. There are many many people that are going through the same thing. If you go to iitap.com you will be able to see which therapists are located in Alberta that specialize in sexual addiction.

  17. The sexual assault Center of Edmonton is the best place to go. It sounds like you have untreated trauma and they are trained for treating exactly this. Give them a call. ❤
