As Dallas sex addiction counselors, we are trained to treat and understand codependency and coaddiction, as well as sex addiction, love addiction, and other process addictions — which are unhealthy relationships with mood altering behaviors. The behaviors and obsession that goes with them are primarily repression mechansisms for unresolved grief, sorrow, and loss.

Our sex addiction, love addiction and partners of sex addicts groups provide integral pieces of recovery and healing that can’t be obtained in other ways, such as individual therapy or 12-step groups alone. These therapist led groups are intended to be part of a robust recovery plan that includes 12-step work, individual therapy, couples therapy and groups, and medication management.
