Since 1988, Prescott House has been a pioneer in sex addiction treatment and staffs multiple Certified Sex Addiction Therapists to provide the therapy needed to heal. There is not one specific factor that can be pinpointed to cause sexual addiction, there are many psychological, biological, and social factors that have been found to contribute to and enable this addiction. Proudly utilizing Dr. Carnes’ Thirty-Task Model, Prescott House helps treat men struggling with sexually compulsive behaviors. Operating in a therapeutic environment allows individuals to positively manage their addiction recovery. Utilizing self-esteem building tools for confidence, an overall sense of self-control is developed while re-entering the stream of life.
An in-depth sex addiction treatment program has been developed and headed by Certified Sex Addiction Therapists (CSATs). Finding a Certified Sex Addiction Therapist is a great place to start to treating sexual compulsivity and intimacy disorders. CSATs are therapists that have gone through an intensive therapeutic training program, prioritizing effective and successful treatment techniques. These techniques focus specifically on helping an individual addicted to sexually compulsive behaviors to recover.

Drug dependency is a systematic issue that affects millions of people worldwide, regardless of the specific substance being used. The effects of drug dependence on the body and mind can vary depending on the drug in question, but the process of addiction and dependence remains the same.
Drugs that are commonly abused include alcohol, prescription drugs, and illicit substances such as cocaine, marijuana, and heroin. Each of these drugs has unique effects on the body, but the science behind drug dependency is universal.
The journey from casual drug use to addiction is often a slow and gradual one. As a person continues to use drugs, the body becomes dependent on the substance to maintain normal levels of hormones and chemicals that were once released naturally. When the drug is taken away, the body experiences withdrawal effects, which can be painful and disorienting.
Alcohol is a widely used substance, with millions of people around the world consuming it in various forms. However, what starts as a casual drink can often turn into repeated use or even dependence.
When someone becomes dependent on alcohol, their body starts to depend on it in order to maintain baseline levels of chemicals and hormones that once provided a feeling of euphoria. Over time, these chemicals become necessary just to function and stopping alcohol consumption can lead to painful and disorienting withdrawal effects.
Alcohol dependence affects not only the body, but also the mind. Although the effects of alcohol may vary depending on the individual and the amount consumed, prolonged and excessive alcohol use can lead to physical, psychological, and social consequences. These may include liver damage, depression, and strained relationships.
