In brief: FYI: "Sex Addiction"
Not everyone considers "sex addiction" a useful diagnosis, in the first place.
Read Dr. Marty Klein's thoughtful perspective on it: http://www.martyklein.com/why-sexual-addiction-is-not-a-useful-diagnosis-and-why-it-matters/ Suggest consulting w/ a sex-positive therapist to understand concerns you may have about yourself (or other person) in relation to compulsive sexual behavior.

In brief: Maybe
Familiarity with sex addiction depends less on the professional designation than on the professional's interest in the particular area.
You might find competent professional help by attending a mutual support group and asking other recovering addicts about their experiences finding professional help.
