Weinstein’s decision to seek inpatient care couldn’t come soon enough and may be life saving

Entertainment mogul, Harvey Weinstein, already fired from The Weinstein Company after reports surfaced accusing him of decades’ worth of sexual harassment, is now bound for a treatment center in Scottsdale, Arizona for sex addiction and other behavioral issues.

Angelina Jolie, Gwenyth Paltow, Kate Beckinsale, Heather Graham, Asia Argento, Rosanna Arquette, Cara Delevigne, Claire Forlani, Ashley Judd, Rose Mcgowen and Mira Sorvino, are just a few actresses who have publicly detailed incidents of harassment and assault against the former Oscar winner.

According to a report from TMZ, his daughter called in on October 11 to report that he was “suicidal and depressed”.

But there are still thousands out there who aren’t getting the help they need — and may not even realize they have a problem that needs addressing before its too late.

Sex addiction comes with numerous health consequences, both physical and psychological. Those who commit sexual assault and/or violence aren’t always living with a sexual behavior addiction, but those who are often can’t control their thoughts or actions.

There are a handful of key characteristics to take note of if you think you or someone you know may be addicted to sex. These include:

  • Compulsive masturbation
  • Multiple sexual partners
  • Consistently practicing unsafe sex
  • Excessive use of pornography
  • Inability to control sexual urges
  • Giving up social, recreational, and work activities to pursue sexual urges

I had to take an honest look at my childhood, my family-of-origin, the poor choices I made as a teenager and early adult, and how easy it is to go off track in one’s life. Though I didn’t use drugs and alcohol to numb my pain, I found other ways to conceal my wounded Self. For you see, I had suffered from a broken teenage heart when I was nineteen. I allowed cruel things said to me when we broke up to negatively affect my self-esteem. Not possessing the ability to understand my internal pain, I started down a path of self- destruction, much like our addict children. I figured if he didn’t love me, then I must not be lovable, and I allowed those negative feelings to snowball into all kinds of poor choices and self- defeating behaviors.

It’s estimated that there are over 300,000 victims of rape and sexual assault in the United States alone each year. No one is immune to sexual violence – not even men. Even though mental health problems are difficult to talk about, addressing a sex addiction in a treatment facility can prevent you or someone you know from ending up on either side of this type of violence.

If you believe you cannot control your sexual impulses, your behavior is hurting your relationships, or you feel you have to hide your sexual behaviors from others, it may be time to see a doctor about treatment options.

Anything you say to a health professional is completely confidential. You can avoid years of guilt and shame, broken relationships, and self-loathing with immediate professional help.

Recovery is possible. You don’t have to go through it alone.
