Sexual Addiction or Hypersexual Disorder: Different Terms for the Same Problem? A Review of the Literature | Sex  Addiction | Scoop.it

"In our systematic review of the existing measures, 22 questionnaires were identified. As with other behavioral addictions, the appropriate treatment of sexual addiction should combine pharmacological and psychological approaches. Psychiatric and somatic comorbidities that frequently occur with sexual addiction should be integrated into the therapeutic process. Group-based treatments should also be attempted."
