1. Residential Programs Treating Sexual Addiction, Trauma, Love Addiction and Codependency. Residential or “inpatient” programs are essentially live-in rehabilitation centers for sex addicts of varying lengths from 30 to 90 days.  Typically these programs have a medical evaluation, an individual and group therapy component, lectures and a great deal of “experiential” work, art therapy, family systems and trauma history exercises.  Most programs introduce and encourage participation in a 12-step program.  Family participation is involved in various ways including a “family week” for most programs.  Cost: $15,000 – $35,000 and up depending on the program and length of stay.  Some programs have a few “sliding scale” slots available.

Outpatient therapy is just that, therapy with a Psychologist, Social Worker, Marriage and Family Therapist or other Counselor qualified to treat sex addiction.  Most often the clinics providing the Intensive Outpatient Programs also provide regular outpatient individual and group therapy with qualified therapists or interns.  In some communities there are no clinics but are therapists certified in the treatment of sex addiction.  These can be found using the Therapist Locator links listed below.  Cost: normal range for therapy.
