This paper describes the nature of ritualization and how rituals reinforce maintenance of an addictive cycle that include both sex and drugs. We describe the ways this process is played out in three scenarios: (1) Addicts who isolate as the paramount feature of a particular ritualized pattern of sex and drugs; (2) women who try to manage childhood trauma and domestic violence through addictive rituals; and (3) gay addicts who use ongoing multiple partners as a ritual to maintain intensity. We also present suggestions for clinicians working with these three populations.
