Foundations Counseling offers confidential sex addiction therapy in Fort Collins, Loveland, and Windsor. Our sex and porn addiction therapy program treats this destructive and difficult problem that ruins relationships, destroys self-esteem and physical health, and sometimes leads to job loss and arrests. Many people are affected by this addiction, which often causes out-of-control feelings and behaviors. However, where there’s a desire to recover – and access to skilled sex addiction counseling – there’s hope for a brighter future.

Sex addiction therapy includes a customized plan that helps you focus on stopping the troublesome behaviors. Our sex and porn addiction counseling program in Fort Collins, Loveland, and Windsor includes taking a full history of your addiction and family of origin issues. We discuss how the behaviors started and what brings them on, past trauma, health concerns, and life issues that may be increasing stress and triggering your sexual acting out.

What You Can Expect with Sex Addiction Therapy

Together, you and your sex addiction therapist will define a relapse prevention plan. After 30 days on this plan, people often report experiencing a sense of well-being, a restored sense of dignity, relief from no longer having to lead double lives, and hope for a future free of sexually compulsive behaviors.

Unfortunately, sexual addiction comes with a stigma, which makes it difficult for some people to reach out for help. That is why sex addiction therapy at Foundations Counseling in Fort Collins, Loveland, and Windsor focuses on creating a safe, confidential, and judgment-free environment where people can heal from their addiction.

When to Ask for Help with Porn or Sex Addiction

Individuals who struggle with sex or porn addiction make sex a higher priority than family, friends, and work. Sex becomes the overriding organizing principle of addicts’ lives, and they’re willing to sacrifice what they cherish most in order to preserve and continue their unhealthy behavior.

Between 70 and 75 percent of sex addicts have thought about suicide. Many suffer from broken relationships and more than 40 percent experience severe marital and other relationship problems. If married, nearly all spouses of sex addicts are traumatized by the lies, deceptions, and betrayal. In many cases, the spouse's wounding also has to be addressed through individual and/or marriage counseling.

Compulsive sexual thoughts and/or behaviors can lead to serious consequences including:

  • Severe depression
  • Low self-esteem
  • Shame
  • Self-hatred
  • Hopelessness
  • Despair
  • Intense anxiety
  • Loneliness
  • Guilt
  • Moral conflict
  • Fear of abandonment
  • Spiritual bankruptcy
  • Distorted thinking
  • Remorse

For some, the addictive behavior involves compulsive masturbation or an extensive use of pornography, phone, or Internet sex services. For others, their addiction can involve multiple affairs, unsafe and risky sex, or illegal activities such as exhibitionism, voyeurism, obscene phone calls, sex with prostitutes, child molestation, or rape. If you are exhibiting any of the above behaviors, it may be time to seek counseling with a sex addiction therapist.
