Sexual Addiction Resources san diego

Resources to help you take control of your life

No matter where you are in your recovery, you deserve the best support to help you along the way. Below you will find resources for support groups, books, and more.

Sexual Addiction Support Groups

Sexual struggles tend to be an isolated and secretive event, unlike an alcoholic or a gambling addict. This unique and hidden away personal struggle can not only hurt you, but it can damage your relationships as well.  These support groups help you get out of the pattern of struggling alone, keeping your thoughts secretive, or meeting others that struggle similarly. Most people try to “manage on their own”…but for most people it doesn’t work.  These groups below meet every day of the week and at different times and throughout San Diego.  There is no excuse that can get in the way.

Recommended Readings for Compulsive Sexual Issues:

I believe in the power of knowledge.  The more you get educated about your personal struggles, the more you understand what to do to get out of the addictive cycle.  Addiction is no easy issue, especially a secretive sexual addiction.

Here are a few books that I recommend:

A Gentle Path Through the Twelve Steps, by Patrick Carnes, Ph.D.

Out of the Shadows: Understanding Sexual Addiction, by Patrick Carnes, Ph.D.

In the Shadows of the Net: Breaking Free from Compulsive Online Sexual Behavior, by Patrick
Carnes, Ph.D.

Don’t Call It Love: Recovery from Sexual Addiction, by Patrick Carnes, Ph.D.

Hope and Recovery: A Twelve Step Guide for Healing from Compulsive Sexual Behavior,
