In brief: Sex addiction

Sexual addiction has many components similar to other addictions.
A good psychological intake is helpful to determine underlying components of the addiction, consider medication to help with symptoms of depression, anxiety, ocd, etc., and then find a support group such as sexaholics anonymous (sa) or sex and love addicts anonymous (slaa). Also individual and group psychotherapy are helpful.
