Oasis Recovery Communities Runcorn offer a comprehensive treatment programme for those suffering from sex and love addiction. Sex and love addiction is actually very common, but due to the shame and guilt that the individuals suffers it is rare that they ask for help. Like with all other addictions, the individual has to reach their own emotional rock bottom; this is brought about through the pain of their own consequences and often through hurting their loved ones. Sex and love addiction is a process addiction, where an individual becomes addicted to the euphoric feelings attached to a particular activity. It can carry the same devastating consequences as an addiction to alcohol or drugs and should be considered no less serious. Oasis Recovery Communities Runcorn offer a safe and non-judgements place where the individual can abstain from all the related behaviours and begin their journey to a full and lasting recovery. We are experts in treating all manner of addictions and only use evidenced based treatment methodologies to treat the root causes of the addiction and to help the individual to recover fully.
Those that suffer from this chronic illness often require professional intervention and treatment in order to get well. Sex and love addiction is far more complex than just having a love for sex or falling in love. They are compelled to seek out sex and love regardless of consequences or harm to themselves or to others. Below is a set of characteristics that typically relate to this particular addiction:
If you or a loved one are worried you may be suffering from sex addiction, the above characteristics will help you to identify if this is the case.
Oasis Recovery Communities Runcorn has years of experience in successfully treating all manner of addictions and its common co-occurring illness. We offer a number of powerful and effective treatment methodologies designed to bring about a complete change in the addicts thinking and therefore their subsequent actions. We use evidence based talking therapies to unearth and treat the root causes of each individual patient’s addiction. We also offer a number of powerful holistic based treatments, such as physical fitness, creative therapy and spiritual development. In essence, our treatment programmes are designed to treat the mind, body and spirit. Each person is treated as a whole and on a very individualised basis. By undergoing a sex and love addiction rehabilitation programme with us, the individual will benefit from the following therapies proven to be successful in its treatment:
The length of programme that will be most effective will be dependent on the individual’s mental and physical state when they admit to us and if there is any other addictions present that require treatment. We recommend our 12 week primary care programme, in order that firm foundations can be put in place for lasting recovery. There is no quick fix to any addiction. As a chronic relapsing brain disease (as recognised by Public Health England) clients who opt for a short programme are at higher risk of relapse. Our longer tem programmes provide the patient with the opportunity to benefit from additional therapy. There is also the opportunity for Secondary care and Tertiary care/ sober living accommodation within our therapeutic community. This further helps the patient to reintegrate back into society and day-to-day living without outside pressures, and allows them the space and time to put into practise what they have learned during the intensive period of primary care treatment. Throughout Secondary and Tertiary care they will remain within our supportive environment and receive further counselling, educational and training opportunities.
Most individuals that suffer from Sex and Love addiction also have co dependency issues and suffer from cripplingly low self-esteem. This can have a huge impact on how they handle their emotions and personal relationships with others. We treat the root causes of the addiction using a combination of power treatment methodologies. With the addiction removed, in their natural state, we are able to work on rebuilding their self-esteem and self worth and show them effective methods of how to take care of themselves first and foremost and how to foster a new healthier belief system. During the initial stages of treatment, with the addiction removed, it is likely they will feel exceptionally vulnerable and uncomfortable. We will do all we can to support and motivate them through this period of abstinence and help them to see that there is a beautiful life ahead of them, outside of the pain and misery of addiction.
For those with a dual addiction, co occurring illness or substance dependency, we will ensure that all illnesses presenting, are treated simultaneously for maximum impact.
Many patients recoil in fear at the thought of long-term rehabilitation, worried about how it will affect their work, finances and loved ones. Make no mistake, Sex and love addiction can and does kill. It is a relatively short period of time in the grand scheme of life, if it means they can leave treatment with the confidence and tools required to stay abstinent from destructive behaviours on a permanent basis.
Addiction in any form is not curable. However, it is completely treatable. It can be successfully arrested and permanent recovery maintained from there. If an individual suffering with an addiction to Sex and Love addiction relapses they are very likely to end up losing everything and end up in the same position that they were in before, or worse. Addiction is a deadly and progressive illness and over any given period of time, consequences only get bigger and more serious. Those that suffer from Sex and Love addiction struggle to engage in healthy relationships with others and with themselves; this can lead them to becoming very depressed, isolated and even suicidal. There needs to be an acceptance in the individual that they cannot ever resort to their addiction again and that a complete change in thinking and lifestyle is required in order for them to stay abstinent; this is achievable one day at a time by using the tools of recovery that they are taught whilst in treatment. Our rehabs work very intensively with the individual to help them understand and accept that they are suffering from addiction and that it is only through the process of change and personal growth that they will be able to stay abstinent. Furthermore, we will show them exactly what it is that they need to do in order to maintain recovery. Abstinence does not mean hat they can never have sex or a relationship again, but it does mean abstaining until they are able to fully apply the tools of recovery and learn to love themselves first and foremost.
