How to Know if a Sex Addict is Really in Recovery (A Podcast Interview)

He Says He's In Recovery, But is it True?
Partners of sex addicts are on heart-breaking and hard journey. One of the many challenges they face is seeking emotional safety within their relationship, which is a difficult skill to master. In many cases, an addict will make promises of change (certainly, they usually want to change). But, based on their history of misusing  words, they often create a situation where words mean nothing and action with the right attitude means everything.
In my recent interview with Betrayal Trauma Recovery, I talked about what constitutes good recovery for an addict and what partners can look for as signs of progress. If you’re a partner of a sex or pornography addict, I encourage you to listen to this podcast (here) and seek the help you deserve. We at LifeSTAR of the Central Valley have served partners for many years and we are here to serve you.
Wishing all partners strength, hope, and healing.
