Right now in your health news, experts say sex addiction is a growing problem, but is easy access to social media and the internet to blame?

Experts say 15 to 20 percent of adult americans suffer from some form of sex addiction. Like alcohol or drug addiction, it can lead to problems with work, money, not to mention marital problems.

Therapist Charles Coulter says easy access to sexual images online is the biggest contributor to the growing problem.

Former sex addict Jonathan Daugherty started the group "Broken Ministeries", an organization that helps men and couples recover from sex addiction.

He strongly recommends going to therapy, being honest with yourself about the addiction and emotional triggers that can keep you from recovering.
