In this week’s episode of Sex, Love, and Addiction, Dr. Rob welcomes back Dr. Candice Christiansen, founder and clinical director for the Namaste Center for Healing. She and Rob discuss some of the co-occurring diagnoses that sometimes underlie addiction, and the fact that it’s not unusual for people with sexual problems to also have an emotional and mental disorder. They give a few examples of these conditions, define some characteristics of people on the spectrum, and talk about the importance of getting a professional evaluation to make sure one is getting the proper treatment.
