Prostitution Addiction Treatment
About our Prostitution Addiction Treatment
I can help, and have helped, many persons who solicit prostitutes to discontinue this behavior. I have helped even the most addicted clients not only leave this behavior behind for good, but for many of them, no longer even have a part of them that wants to engage in this. A change in perspective on this behavior, and an understanding of their disorder by the client, can greatly reduce the clients urge to engage in it, and leave the client much more comfortable than just “white knuckling” it. That term “white knuckle” refers to resisting an addictive behavior through sheer will power, rather than getting yourself to an emotional place where you are comfortable, and do not even want that substance or behavior anymore. I want my clients not only leaving these behaviors behind, but feeling good about themselves, and ready to go on to life’s next challenge. Below I will give some explanation of the addictive version of protitution use.
Although the “use” of prostitutes was more acceptable in our culture several generations ago, and it is good to see patronizing prostitutes is a much less socially acceptable behavior than it once was, but sad to say, this behavior still occurs. It is an abusive activity, that is for some person’s, develops into a full on life changing addiction. Many Prostitution Addicts see prostitutes very regularly. The addict may move from one “visit” every other week, and as their progression of behaviors continues, on to seven visits per week. The Prostitution Addict may use the same woman each time, or a new woman each time, or some variation. The addict sometimes believes they are “friends” with the prostitute, while some other prostitution addicts have no illusions as to friendship. The industry of protitution is built on, and runs on, the exploitation of the drug addicted, human trafficked, or otherwise unfortunate. Anyone participating in paying for Prostitution is contributing to the harm of others. I am aware of some newish “sex positive” theories as to why prostitution is not harmful, but the reality, as practiced, not the theory, is that prostitution is a form of sexual abuse of less fortunate humans, by more fortunate humans, that comes at the mental and spiritual expense of both the buyer and the seller. The prostitution addict does not see the fact that this behavior is changing him for the worse.
The Prostitution Addict is not able to recognize all the pain and exploitation in these situations that the rest of us see very easily. Despite the rest of us seeing the situation very plainly and for what it is, the Prostitution Addict is not able to see the financial harm this does to himself, or if he is especially wealthy and this spending does not jeopardize him, he cannot see the irrationality of his spending his money this way, even if he can afford it. The Prostitution Addict’s disorder has him to see two adults fairly and equitably making a mutually beneficial deal, when in reality, the deal is harmful to both parties, and comes with many risks the addict ignores. All Prostitution addicts have some delusional thinking as to the harm they think they are not doing onto this other person. All Prostitution addicts have some illusions as to this behavior not harming himself. All Prostitution addicts have serious illusions as to their legal and physical safety during these behaviors, with their disorder having them dramatically discount down the probabilities of arrest or assault when they are engaging in these (typically) illegal behaviors.
