Sexual Addiction

Sexual Addiction Issues Require Specially Trained Treatment

Sex is part of a normal, healthy life, but when sexual activities or thoughts become consuming or habit-forming, it crosses the line into addiction. Sex addicts will continue to engage in sexual behavior despite financial problems, potential arrest, health risks, or broken relationships.

Is Sex Addiction a Real Disorder?

Sexual addicts experience tremendous amounts of guilt and shame over their behavior because they feel they are not in control and live in constant fear of being discovered. This complex disorder requires specially trained clinicians who understand the unique needs and challenges of these individuals.

Outpatient Treatment for Sex Addiction

For graduates of our sister program, Gentle Path at The Meadows and Willow House at The Meadows, our outpatient treatment at The Meadows IOP is an extension of that inpatient program in a less structured setting. Since not everyone needs inpatient or residential treatment, we also offer a track designed for individuals new to sex addiction treatment. It is designed to help those who are just beginning their recovery and those for whom an inpatient or residential treatment program is not determined to be clinically necessary or appropriate. The patients are allowed to be human with struggles being brought back to the group to be processed and shared with each other. Peer support is used to truly engage and teach those dealing with sex addiction how to reach out to one another, especially in times of crisis. The focus of The Meadows IOP is to help continue the skills around relapse prevention while building and capitalizing on a safe environment for accountability.

Recovery From Sex Addiction Is Possible

Our sex addiction outpatient program is available for both men and women suffering from sexual addiction. Facilitated by an experienced, CSAT-trained therapist who is proficient in using Dr. Patrick Carnes’ 30 Task Model, we have a proven track record of treating this disorder.

Get the Help You Need

The Meadows Outpatient Centers offer a full range of outpatient services for adults dealing with addiction, trauma, and other behavioral health conditions. We provide the same level of clinical excellence and integrity found at Meadows inpatient programs, but with outpatient flexibility. Some patients may have completed a Meadows inpatient program and are ready to “step down” to a lower level of care. Others may begin outpatient treatment without requiring a higher level of care. Every individual’s current issues and circumstances are taken into consideration to be sure they are offered the safest and most appropriate program for their clinical needs.
