Treatment and Therapy for Sex and Pornography Addiction
New York Pathways is devoted to sex addiction therapy and treatment and rebuilding lives and relationships lost to sex addiction. New York Pathways employs a team of licensed therapists who are specially trained in sex addiction therapy and treatment. New York Pathways follows the addiction treatment model that was originally formulated for the treatment of alcoholism and chemical dependency, which treats the addiction as the primary disorder rather than a symptom of an underlying condition. New York Pathways has seen much success with this model of sex addition treatment and finds that effective treatment of underlying conditions can only be accomplished once the addictive behaviors have been addressed. Sex addiction treatment at New York Pathways consists of individual therapy, group therapy, couples and family therapy, and intensive weekend workshops. We are conveniently located in mid-town Manhattan and offer sex addiction treatment in a safe confidential environment.

When a sex addict’s behavior is revealed to their spouse, it’s typically a surprise. A traumatizing surprise. And yet, for too long, the classical addiction model inferred that these spouses, far from being unaware of their partners’ addictions, were “enabling” the problem with “codependent” behavior.
