“Mark has eloquently unraveled the mystery behind addictive behavior: when our relationships are not alive and growing, the temptation for various kinds of addictions is unleashed..”—Dr. Gary Smalley With today’s rampant availability of Internet pornography, sexual addiction has become a national epidemic that affects up to 10 percent of Christians. As devastating as any drug habit, it brings heartbreak and despair to those it entangles. But there is help for men and women caught in sexual addiction’s downward spiral. This book offers a path that leads beyond compulsive thoughts and behaviors to healing and transformation. Sensitive to the shame of sexual addiction without minimizing its sinfulness, Dr. Mark Laaser traces the roots of the problem, discusses its patterns and impact, and maps out a biblical approach to self-control and sexual integrity. Previously titled Faithful and True, this revision includes an all-new section that deals with sexual addiction in the church. Other important changes reflect cultural trends, incorporate current research, and place a greater emphasis on spiritual growth. This book also addresses the unique needs and issues of female sex addicts. Whether you know someone with a sexual addiction or struggle yourself, Healing the Wounds of Sexual Addiction points the way to understanding, wholeness, and holiness.

Readers will learn about the Addicts Life Scale, a simple yet insightful tool that illustrates how one’s mood is directly related to destructive acting-out behaviors. Once a man becomes aware of his mood levels, he can begin to take proactive steps to reach and sustain a mood level where he feels confident and motivated to remain free of destructive acting-out behaviors. Book chapters are structured to help men examine their most personal issues, including: • the nature and origin of sexual addiction, • the roles of anger, anxiety, isolation, and depression in sexual addiction, • how co-dependency fosters sexual addiction, • how to cultivate self-awareness and improved attitude, and • creating a healthy life style absent sexually acting out. Ultimately, readers will discover the satisfaction that comes from improved relationships with their spouses, children, other men, and God. Paul Becker’s unique Recovery From Sexual Addiction series includes a core book, client workbook, and a clinician guide. The three texts use an interactive approach to help therapists and clients thoroughly explore the roots of sexual addiction and effective ways to achieve long-term recovery. The series is especially helpful to therapists who prefer to base recovery on principles proven by Dr. Patrick Carnes.

As technology and the internet have become more accessible, the number of affordable, easy links to pleasurable sexual content and activity has increased with it, and so too has the number of people struggling with sex, porn, and love addiction. Unfortunately, very few people possess a comprehensive understanding of this incredibly complicated disease. Sex Addiction 101 covers everything from what sexual addiction is and how it can best be treated, to how it affects various subgroups of the population, such as women, gays, and teenagers, to how sex addicts can protect themselves from the online sexual onslaught. Sex Addiction 101 is intended to enlighten the clinical population as well as actual sex addicts and their loved ones. Along with his mentor Patrick Carnes, Weiss has become the face of and driving force behind understanding and treating sexual addiction; this book should be a core title in every addiction collection.

A guide to all kinds of addiction from a star who has struggled with heroin, alcohol, sex, fame, food and eBay, that will help addicts and their loved ones make the first steps into recovery “This manual for self-realization comes not from a mountain but from the mud...My qualification is not that I am better than you but I am worse.” —Russell Brand With a rare mix of honesty, humor, and compassion, comedian and movie star Russell Brand mines his own wild story and shares the advice and wisdom he has gained through his fourteen years of recovery. Brand speaks to those suffering along the full spectrum of addiction—from drugs, alcohol, caffeine, and sugar addictions to addictions to work, stress, bad relationships, digital media, and fame. Brand understands that addiction can take many shapes and sizes and how the process of staying clean, sane, and unhooked is a daily activity. He believes that the question is not “Why are you addicted?” but "What pain is your addiction masking? Why are you running—into the wrong job, the wrong life, the wrong person’s arms?" Russell has been in all the twelve-step fellowships going, he’s started his own men’s group, he’s a therapy regular and a practiced yogi—and while he’s worked on this material as part of his comedy and previous bestsellers, he’s never before shared the tools that really took him out of it, that keep him clean and clear. Here he provides not only a recovery plan, but an attempt to make sense of the ailing world.
