Female Sexual Arousal: Why Viagra Doesn't Work on Women

Every single attempt at increasing female sexual desire through peripherally acting agents has been a colossal failure. Drug companies found that if a man is physically turned on, he will also become psychologically turned on. Women, however, require more than just physical stimulation.

Recognizing Sex Addiction in Friends and Family

Sex addicts are not as easy to spot as one might think. Usually, a sex addict’s behavior must create a catastrophic event (or a very large number of smaller but still problematic events) before that behavior becomes so obvious and overriding that it can no longer be ignored.

“Triggers” are the thoughts, feelings, and behaviors that set the addictive cycle in motion. If a sex addict can learn to identify his or her triggers and stop them in their tracks, that person has a chance to stay sexually sober.

Two-Week Intensive Treatment Programs begin July 21st!

The SRI Two-Week Intensive is a program of therapy and education designed to help our clients identify and eliminate all sexual acting out behavior, and to develop the skills and tools needed to prevent sexual relapse.

The Two-Week Intensive Program at SRI is a cost-effective and more time-effective alternative to the traditional 4-6 week hospital stay or residential treatment programs. It is our belief, based on our decades of experience, that most sex addicts do not require a lengthy stay in a controlled environment. Our program offers many similar benefits while minimizing the disruption in our clients' lives.
