Sex Addiction in the Military
Addiction in Fairbanks, Alaska
We welcome members of any sexual identity or orientation, whether they are gay, lesbian, straight, bisexual, or transgender. The primary purpose of meetings is to carry our message of recovery to the addict who still suffers. Meetings explain the program, help keep us sober, and provide healthy opportunities for fellowship with other recovering addicts. In meetings we learn how to live in the solution. Meetings keep our focus on recovery and on the importance of maintaining abstinence. Especially early in recovery, meetings give us a sober place to go rather than engage in addictive behavior. We suggest attending at least six meetings before deciding whether SAA is for you. Attending several different meetings may be helpful, as each has its own format and atmosphere.
By offering individualized, comprehensive treatment, the staff at Red River Hospital strives to provide all who come to us for care with the skills necessary to overcome their psychiatric and addiction problems. Sex addiction has been described as a progressive disorder of intimacy that is characterized by compulsive sexual thoughts and acts. Despite what many may assume, having an addiction to sex does not always infer that an individual is chronically engaging in sexual activity with others. Some sex addicts do not allow their behaviors to move beyond compulsive masturbation or an excessive use of pornography. Other sex addicts will participate in illegal acts such as voyeurism, exhibitionism, or making random, obscene phone calls. Sadly, there are some sex addicts whose addiction brings them to the point of committing rape, sexual assault, or child molestation 1.
There are many wonderful counselors who have years of experience but have very little experience working with this type of addiciton.
