Addiction RecoveryHere’s an article I wrote asking ‘Do 12 Step Programs Really Work for Sex Addiction’ on my other website, Sisterhood Of Support . It covers information on 12 Step Programs and sex addiction treatment and recovery. So check it out, I think everyone here will appreciate this information.

12 Step Programs have been around for a long time. Wikipedia describes the 12 steps:

As summarized by the American Psychological Association, the process involves the following:[1]

  • admitting that one cannot control one’s alcoholism, addiction or compulsion;
  • recognizing a higher power that can give strength;
  • examining past errors with the help of a sponsor (experienced member);
  • making amends for these errors;
  • learning to live a new life with a new code of behavior;
  • helping others who suffer from the same alcoholism, addictions or compulsions.

Proponents of the 12 Step Programs for sex addicts believe that it is a true addiction, which is opposed to the opinions of the medical and psychological professions.
