Technology is The New Oxygen

Dr. Erica Sarr, primary therapist at Gentle Path at The Meadows, facilitated an educational webinar titled Addiction Interaction in Young Adults: Drugs, Sex & Tech for clinical professionals August 24, 2017.

Recently, some very famous people have been accused of sexual misbehavior, and they’ve responded by entering sex addiction treatment. Unfortunately, many people have serious misconceptions about what this means. They think, “Oh, this guy commits a bunch of sex crimes and instead of being thrown in jail, he jets off to a resort and says he’s getting help, and we’re supposed to just accept that and maybe even feel sorry for him because he’s got a problem, and then after he gets help we’re supposed to excuse his behavior and forgive him and act like nothing happened.”

Well, that’s not reality. Sex addiction treatment is not a joke. It’s not fun, or relaxing, or an excuse for bad behavior. Sexual addiction is a very real, deeply debilitating disorder with the same loss of control and devastating consequences as every other addiction – alcohol, drugs, gambling, spending, etc. And treatment for sexual addiction is just as serious (and as difficult) as treatment for any other addiction.
