Sex Addiction: Should You Be Concerned?

September 10, 2020

We discuss sexual addiction – how it impacts relationships and how it’s linked to trauma on

The numbers are in: 6% of population in the U.S. identify as having a sexual addiction. 27,000 people search Google for “sexual addiction” every day. This is a huge number, yet it is still an issue that we don’t talk about or understand in the general population or within the therapeutic community.  Unfortunately, at this time, there is no significant research on this topic in Canada and experts in the field are few in number.

According to our expert panel, virtually all people struggling with a sexual addiction also have a noteworthy trauma history.  These interweave to further undermine recovery and frequently re-ignite the traumatic past.
