Addiction is Determined by 3 Criteria


Is the behavior compulsive?


Have you tried to stop, limit or minimize the behavior without success?


Has continued “use” created damage or unmanageability in your life?

If you can answer yes to these questions in regards to your sexual behaviors* or fantasies, it is possible that you struggle with sex addiction or compulsive sexual behaviors. The shame and anguish you may feel can be deep and sometimes debilitating. Your intimate relationships may be suffering from betrayal and brokenness, or you may have very few intimate relationships.

Rogue River Counseling is a group of Certified Sex Addiction Therapists with the necessary training and experience to guide you through understanding and healing from these behaviors. When someone struggles in this way, there is personal damage and also damage to close relationships. We work to heal the damage, and provide a roadmap to deeper, more trusting and intimate relationships.
