What is Sex Addiction?
Why is Sex Addiction Treatment Important?
Commonly, sex is associated with love and emotional intimacy. Sexual addiction, however, often lacks that emotional connection and drive. As a result, patients dealing with other psychological challenges, including high levels of depression, anxiety, or trauma, may have a higher risk of suffering from sexual addiction. Unfortunately, first responders may deal with those challenges at a higher rate than the general population, which increases the risk that they will suffer from sex addiction.
Sex addiction treatment can help first responders in a number of ways.
In most cases, sex addiction occurs as a response to other high emotions and challenges. For example, a first responder might look to sex as a way to relieve some of the stress and tension often faced on the job. As therapists work with first responders to identify those underlying challenges, they can help them develop healthy coping mechanisms that may make it easier for them to avoid those challenges in the future.
Sexual addiction can be extremely hard on a relationship. Some patients suffering from sexual addiction have a hard time forming healthy relationships and connections. Others may find that it interferes with their marriages or relationships. Entering into couples therapy can provide patients with a higher level of support that can enable them to repair those damages or enter into a healthy relationship with a romantic partner.
Patients who have a high number of sexual partners may have a higher risk of contracting a variety of STDs, which can impact overall health. First responders suffering from sex addiction challenges may also be more likely to engage in increased risk-taking behavior, including sex without protection.
Like any addiction, sex addiction can start to impact a patient's work. First responders who engage in risky behavior on the job may risk losing those jobs altogether. Treatment, on the other hand, can help address those behaviors and provide first responders with a higher level of support, which can decrease those risky behaviors and lead to healthier outcomes.
Many first responders try to stop engaging in dangerous or risky sexual behaviors, but may find it very difficult to stop on their own. Receiving sex addiction treatment can help first responders address the seriousness of that addiction and go on to live more productive, fulfilling lives.
