Love, Sex, Porn, & Addiction Discussion Group (Online & Free)


community-988898_1280

I recently became of aware of some online resources for sexual addicts. First, the website called InTheRooms.com provides many free online 12-Step meetings such as Sexaholics Anonymous, Sex Addicts Anonymous, Sex & Love Addicts Anonymous, Adult Children of Alcoholics/Dysfunctional Families, etc. There are online meetings available daily and at many times.

Another online opportunity for growth and learning is a new group on that same website called the “Love, Sex, Porn, & Addiction Discussion Group” led by leading sexual addiction expert Robert Weiss LCSW, CSAT-S. This group is held on Fridays at 6pm PST. Tonight I checked out the show for myself and found it to be helpful for both sexual addicts and partners.

I encourage those seeking additional support throughout the week to check out these resources. Please note that many people struggling with sexual addiction or partner betrayal trauma require treatment with a therapist who specializes in these areas (such as myself or others in the LifeSTAR network). These online groups are not therapy groups but can still be very helpful resources for those who cannot afford treatment or need additional support. Also, I cannot vouch for the content or language of any individual meeting.
