The Struggle With Addiction

i'm struggling.

“I just can’t seem to stop looking at porn.”
“I swore last time I’d never do it again, but I’ve failed again.”
“I’m cheating on my spouse; I never thought I’d cross that line.”
“I’ve tried everything, and I just can’t stop.”
“After all I’ve done, I’m not even sure God wants anything to do with me.”
“I need help but I’m afraid.”

I Need Help.

The first thing we want you to know is YOU’RE NOT ALONE. If your struggle with pornography & sexual brokenness has been going on for awhile, you’ve probably worked really hard to hide it, manage it, and stop it. Unsuccessfully. You’ve worked hard to keep anyone from knowing, believing that no one would accept you if they knew what you were doing. In that isolation you’ve probably felt a lot of stress and shame, and it’s wearing you out. What would it be like if you didn’t have to carry this burden all alone? What if you could actually trust someone with your secret?

We understand that you’re skeptical. It’s hard to step out of the shadows and trust others with secrets you’ve held for a long time. It’s OK. All you need to do is take the first step. Click the button below to find some resources that will help you get started.

Am I A Sex Addict?

The question has been on your mind, but maybe you’ve been afraid to learn the answer. Discovering exactly what you’re dealing with is scary, but God can use this knowledge to begin to bring freedom you’ve never experienced. One important step is to determine exactly what you’re dealing with.

The Sexual Addiction Screening Test (SAST) is used to examine sexually compulsive behavior to help determine whether an individual may be sexually addicted. Developed in cooperation with hospitals, treatment programs, private therapists, and community groups, the SAST provides a profile of responses that help to discriminate between addictive and non-addictive behavior.

You will find a link below to take the assessment (under Step 1: Am I An Addict?). After taking the assessment, we strongly encourage you to seek help and treatment with a trained professional. We specifically suggest locating a counselor who is a Certified Sexual Addiction Therapist (CSAT). To have us help you locate a CSAT therapist in your area, click here
