Intensive Treatment Centers

There are times when weekly therapy and 12 steps meetings are not enough to help you heal from your hypersexual and/or compulsive sexual behaviors.

To gain greater self awareness and healing there are some excellent programs that specialize in treating problematic compulsive sexual behaviors as described in the DSM5. 

‘Compulsive sexual behavior disorder is characterized by persistent and repetitive sexual impulses or urges that are experienced as irresistible or uncontrollable, leading to repetitive sexual behaviors, along with additional indicators such as sexual activities becoming a central focus of the person's life to the point of neglecting health and personal care or other activities, unsuccessful efforts to control or reduce sexual behaviors, or continuing to engage in repetitive sexual behavior despite adverse consequences (e.g., relationship disruption, occupational consequences, negative impact on health). The individual experiences increased tension or affective arousal immediately before the sexual activity, and relief or dissipation of tension afterwards. The pattern of sexual impulses and behavior causes marked distress or significant impairment in personal, family, social, educational, occupational, or other important areas of functioning.’

The following list is intended as a guide to some of the intensive treatment centers clients have gone to and found helpful. This is in no way an endorsement of any one place. The decision is yours, the research and information provided was gathered to assist you in making your own choice.
