Porn Addiction Treatment & Rehab

Since the 1920s, pornographic content has been widely available for men and women to view and watch worldwide. Now viewed by approximately half of all adults in the United Kingdom, porn has become a somewhat normal part of everyday life in Western countries.

Often harmless, watching and viewing pornographic content offers instant pleasure. In some instances, porn enables many to escape reality for a short period. However, unhealthy relationships and porn addictions can develop and gradually reduce an individual’s life quality.

When a porn addiction arises, it is vital that porn addiction treatment & rehab is sought.

What Is A Porn Addiction?

A porn addiction is a behavioural addiction that causes millions of individuals to experience uncontrollable compulsions to view porn in order to experience pleasure.

When experienced, porn addictions significantly alter the way in which an individual thinks, acts and behaves.

For example, porn addictions often lead those suffering to isolate themselves in order to feed their addiction. Porn addictions also cause many relationships to break down and can lead to unemployment and divorce.

What Causes A Porn Addiction?Support

Although accessing pornographic content is not always deemed to be harmful, as the brain’s reward system becomes activated and associates pleasurable sensations, enhanced moods and happiness with viewing pornographic content, many individuals find it extremely difficult to control the impulses they experience.

Unfortunately, an inability to control impulses and limit the amount of porn accessed causes many to become preoccupied with viewing pornographic content, such as images and videos. As a result, porn addictions gradually arise.

In addition to the above, many psychological factors can cause porn addictions to arise. For example, trauma, stress, substance addictions and mental health disorders are all cited as common causes of porn addictions.

What Are The Signs Of A Porn Addiction?

When a porn addiction arises, the following signs all indicate that porn addiction treatment & rehab must be secured.

  • Excessively consuming porn
  • Spending a greater amount of time watching porn
  • Isolation from loved ones and friends in order to view porn
  • Experiencing intense urges to view or watch porn at various times of the day
  • Difficulty concentrating on day-to-day tasks due to being preoccupied with the thought of viewing porn
  • Changes in relationships with others
  • Reduced interest in various aspects of everyday life, such as work and family time
  • Financial difficulty due to spending an increased amount of money on porn
