Many people become addicted to sex as a way to cope with stress, low self-esteem, and even trauma. When this happens, sex becomes an unhealthy coping mechanism that can actually get in the way of healing.

Do you feel a constant craving for sex is negatively affecting your life and relationships? If so, seeking sex addiction treatment is a logical next step to take. A sex counselor can help you discover the causes of your addiction so that you can set limits and improve your life.

Wherever you are located in California from Alameda to Yucaipa or even Montclair, or anywhere else nearby, Mental Health Match can help you easily find an experienced therapist or counselor who best meets your needs.
