There are many ways to get treatment for the addict, but never the less, even if the addict gets "clean and sober", the baggage is still very heavy and there will always be some tension in the couple. And this tension is often causing relapse. This book is for both the addict and the co-addict. It is easy and clear to read. It addresses the main issues: forgiveness, regaining intimacy and above all trusting again without any after taste of fear. These are topics that sex addiction treament books do not really talk about. The book is not suitable as treament for the addict. It is only a way to open his eyes. However, this is a great way for the co-addict to understand a little more what this is all about and how to deal with it. I recommend it because this will be a great investment if you both read it.
