Our expert says:
There IS help out there but it is few and far between...it pretty much depends where you are based. Options include a therapist who knows about and is comfortable treating sex addiction. You may need to have an assessment with a psychiatrist to assess for any concurrent depression; sometimes compulsive behaviour can be aided by medication. There are also some sex addiction support groups (SAA or SLA - sex addicts anonymous or sex and love addicts anonymous...). IF you get stuck either contact your local addiction treatment centre and ask for some direction or call our helpline for an appropriate referral 0860100262.
You have taken the first step now, now just begin the journey of finding the supports you need. In the interim, some books you might find helpful are OUt of the Shadows by Patrick Carnes- in fact just search his name and you will see a whole list of books he has written on the subject. You can also access information from www.sexhelp.com
