Sexnology: Technology’s Impact

Sexnology: Technology's Impact on Sex Addiction

Sexual addiction is nothing new. It's been around since the beginning of time, most likely, though it's only been recognized by psychotherapists and addressed as a chronic, progressive, and treatable disorder for the past 30 years or so. (Therapists have been diagnosing and treating chemical addictions for only a short while longer, though they too have been around pretty much forever.)

In the late 1990s, in conjunction with the proliferation of home computers and Internet connectivity, sexual addiction just plain took off. Since that time clinicians have witnessed a sharp and consistent rise in the number of people walking into their offices for help with problematic, out-of-control, fantasy-driven patterns of compulsive sexual activity.

Study Identifies Sexual Addiction as Identifiable and Diagnosable

This study strongly suggests that sexual addiction not only exists, but in fact manifests in similar ways to other accepted forms of addiction like alcoholism, drug addiction, and Internet addiction.

Sex Addiction and Narcissism

Clinicians have noted that sex addicts are almost universally self-centered and self-absorbed – not just sexually but also elsewhere in their lives. This perceived link was purely anecdotal. However, a new study quantifies this link.

Two-Week Intensive Treatment Programs begin September 22nd!

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.

We've Moved

We're pleased to announce the Sexual Recovery Institute has moved to a new, larger space!

The new offices are just a few miles from the previous offices (if needed, please call us for the new address). They are still convenient for our clients, yet miles apart in terms of improved space. The offices have better handicapped access and there is secured convenient parking in the building.

"SRI has continued to grow, and the new space will allow us to accommodate the increased demand for the intensive outpatient treatment program," said Program Director Monica Blauner. "The offices include space to add additional intensives and help more clients recover from sex and love addiction," Blauner added. "SRI will also be able to expand programs to help partners of sex and love addicts heal from their trauma."

Recovering from Infidelity Group

Addiction Specialist Marty Simpson, LMFT, CSAT, hosts a weekly group therapy session focusing on recovering from infidelity. The group helps increase self-awareness leading to a deeper understanding of what causes us to get involved in unhealthy relationships, and what gets in the way of setting healthy boundaries. In addition to the educational component of the group, members have an opportunity to process feelings and benefit from sharing their experience with others in a supportive environment facilitated by an experienced clinician.
