He fits all of the signs and has recently admitted that he is a sex addict. We are working on finding a therapist in our area but I wanted to know if there is anything I can do as his wife to help him stay focused and help him be successful in this... He has admitted that he has a problem several times in the last year or so but has never been serious about getting help until now. This is our Last chance at saving this marriage!! I read about setting boundaries and creating a plan, I read those are important tools in recovery but I can't find an example or details as to what they should include. I'd like to have some kind of system in place ASAP. Does anyone know how this all works? Thanks in advance for any info!View Thread
