There are very effective psychotherapeutic interventions that are suggested along with medication.

Both: Mental illness and substance abuse (sa) can be co- occurring disorders. Sa by itself can be seen as a mental illness. Some conditions like depression and anxiety can be causative factors or can be as a result of the substance being used. However the chemical dependency is usually treated first. Then it is easier to know if its a cause or an effect. Getting clean is the path as u treat the others.

This can be: A very involved assessment . Please seek out a psychologist who specializes in treating addictive sexual behaviors . This is a very treatable problem and certainly avoiding it or putting it on the back burner won't get you to the freedom you're seeking.
