Professionals will find this volume an excellent resource in their clinical practice.

People can be addicted to sex and/or love and recovery is possible. More than ten years ago the National Institute of Health identified sexual addiction as a research priority. Experts now conservatively estimate a prevalence rate of 5 percent of the American population. Eric Griffin-Shelley provides a detailed definition of sex and love addiction as well as an outline of treatment and recovery. Unique to this work, Griffin-Shelley integrates sex and love in its formulation and also presents a two-level approach to recovery. This presentation provides in-depth examples and suggestions for change and supports the growing involvement of Twelve-Step programs in mental health. Professionals can use this resource in their clinical practice to identify and assist sex and love addicts.

Griffin-Shelley clearly describes the behavior of sex and love addicts and the emotions they may be experiencing. Problems such as multiple addictions (to drugs, alcohol, food, work) are examined. The book's two-layer approach to recovery focuses initially on the establishment of sobriety and then outlines an outer layer of protection that the sex and love addict can develop to sustain long-term recovery. Griffin-Shelley's meticulous description of the role of psychotherapy in aiding the recovery process is clearer than any book published to date on either sex or love addiction.
