Those who choose to hire a sex addiction therapist should expect to have different goals from those who are in treatment for drug and alcohol dependency. Since complete sobriety is not the goal in this case, the client will usually work with a therapist in order to identify behaviors, rather than primarily actions, from which to abstain. Potential triggers that enable addictive behavior are identified in therapy, in addition to developing a plan on avoiding these triggers. Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), is commonly employed when attempting to assist a client in identifying negative thoughts in order to break unwanted thought patterns that contribute to undesirable behaviors.
