Sex Addiction Rehab Washington DC

Cleaning house at the beginning of your recovery will save you from the terrible experience of keeping that "one" magazine or video that could possibly cause you to relapse. Many sex addicts that I have counseled had their first relapse with "the one I didn't throw away."
