In April 2016 Utah Gov. Herbert Gary signed a resolution that declared pornography to be a public health crisis!
That in itself is wonderful that the issue is publicly addressed on that level of society, but the problem remains all the same. Even today three years later, the crisis is only intensifying.
Much more effort into educating the public about healthy sexuality and the risks of frequent porn use will be needed.
HOUSE JOINT RESOLUTION NO. 549 – Clearly states that:
“pornography use is linked to lessening desire in young men to marry, dissatisfaction in marriage, and infidelity; and
WHEREAS, this link demonstrates that pornography has a detrimental effect on the family unit; and
WHEREAS, overcoming pornography’s harms is beyond the capability of the afflicted individual to address alone; now, therefore, be it
RESOLVED by the House of Delegates, the Senate concurring, That the General Assembly recognize pornography as a public health hazard leading to a broad spectrum of individual and public health impacts and societal harm”
Sadly, that aligns with the patterns we see from providing recovery options for people that struggle with quitting their highly intensive porn use.
The trends we notice is that this will keep intensifying on a global scale before it gets better.
An addiction to pornography tells the effected person the same lies as a substance addiction:
- You are alone in this
- No one can help you
- You are nothing without the addiction
Nothing could be further from the truth!
Porn addiction thrives in secrecy. It grows and intensifies through isolation.
Reach out for help to find strength, hope and gain momentum towards an addiction free future in recovery.
Whether you are a busy person that need to work your recovery from home by video sessions or are in need of residential treatment followed by aftercare we provide the solution for you to quit porn for good.
Your comeback story is our passion.
