Life-Changing Workshops

For Healing, Discovery, and Emotional Growth

People who struggle with a personality disorders may often have trouble interacting with other people and maintaining healthy relationships. These difficulties can often result in barriers to intimacy that can manifest as problematic sexual behaviors. Individuals with personality disorders can have unhealthy and inflexible thought patterns, and have difficulty coping with everyday problems. Individuals who struggle with personality disorders can develop sexual addiction as a way of trying to relate to those around them in a way that they can accept and understand.

Sex Addiction and Personality Disorders

A personality disorder is a type of mental disorder in which you have a rigid and unhealthy pattern of thinking, functioning and behaving. Individuals with a personality disorder may have trouble perceiving and relating to situations and to people. This causes significant problems and limitations in relationships, social encounters, work and school.

In some cases, sex addicts may not realize that they have a personality disorder because their way of thinking and behaving seems natural to them.

What Causes Personality Disorders?

No one knows exactly what causes of personality disorders, although certain factors seem to increase the risk of developing or triggering personality disorders, including:

  • Family history of personality disorders or other mental illness 
  • Verbal, physical or sexual abuse during childhood 
  • Neglect or an unstable or chaotic family life during childhood
  • Variations in brain chemistry and structure

Personality disorders usually begin in the teen years or early adulthood. Some personality disorders are:

  • Narcissistic personality disorder 
  • Borderline personality disorder
  • Antisocial personality disorder
  • Avoidant personality disorder

Personality disorders are thought to be caused by a combination of genetic and environmental influences. At Gentle Path at The Meadows our team of sexual addiction treatment experts work with patients to identify these issues and develop a treatment plan that will help create long-lasting recovery for our patients.
