The reader is encouraged to contact therapists or psychologists prior to seeking treatment in order to ascertain whether or not a given therapist has a conflicting philosophy that might inhibit successful treatment.

Like other addictive behaviors, treatment for porn addiction starts with the subject admitting they have a problem. Harm to themselves and others has to be demonstrated for treatment to have any hope of lasting effect. Once a person recognizes the problem, the next step is abstinence.

Abstinence can be maintained through in-patient monitoring at a rehab facility or by restricting opportunity with home monitoring. This might also include taking away Internet access or the ability to charge on a credit card.

Support groups are available for the longer term and to help prevent relapse. Sex addiction self-help groups will also allow those who are addicted to pornography to attend meetings.
