PORN ADDICTION TREATMENT IN NYC
PORN ADDICTION COUNSELING
I have helped many clients with porn addiction, focusing on helping the client see how their porn addiction disorder lies to them, and how society lies about pornography. I bring porn-addicted clients to a comfortable and confident place of insight into their disorder. Clients then realize that they are now free, and can do so much more with their life now that they are in control.
Porn addiction is definitely a behavioral addiction. Watching porn for addicts is behaviorally and physically in line with drug use more than any other group.
PORN ADDICT SYMPTOMS
Whether pornography addiction is “real” or not, I simply help those suffering. People addicted to porn have symptoms. They attempt to stop, have many failures to stop, and go through symptoms of withdrawal similar to substance abusers:
- Preoccupation once “triggered”
- Disregard of negative consequences
- Progression into more extreme material
- Greater time spent with pornography
- Use of more devices for porn
- Greater abandoning of family/social/healthy activities
- Irritability when unable to engage in this behavior
- Loss of sexual interest with a partner
PORN ADDICTION CONSEQUENCES
- Pornography addiction can and does harm relationships.
- Vocational loss is common with both legal and illegal pornography, and an untreated porn addict is a work disaster just waiting to happen.
