In this episode of Overcoming Addiction and Betrayal, Dr. Rob and Tami answer questions about the recovery community, the differences between sex addiction and being a sex offender, and why addicts have intimacy disorders. Connection is scary for an addict. This is why they often seek external forces to escape and numb out. On your journey to recovery, it’s about uncovering your blocks to intimacy and re-learning how to connect with another human being in a healthy way again.
