Sex Addiction Treatment: In-Patient Programs


Specialized In-Patient Treatment Programs

For information about what in-patient treatment is, click here.

There are only a handful of in-patient facilities around the US that specialize in treating sexual addiction, however those that do exist have a strong reputation for being very effective. The availability of specialized sexual addiction in-patient centers in other parts of the world is probably even more limited. Several in-patient facilities that specialize in the treatment of sexual addiction are listed below, along with links to their professional sites. (Another way to find professional help if you happen to attend recovery meetings for sexual addiction is to ask others attending the meetings about specialized therapy or programs in which they may have participated.
