CONDITIONS WE TREAT
Let us simplify what may otherwise seem complicated.
We realize you and your loved ones are more than a label. Using common diagnostic terms can aid understanding and help guide treatment solutions.
Male Hypoactive Sexual Disorder
Hypoactive sexual desire disorder (HSDD) occurs in approximately 15% of adult men in the United States. To meet criteria for this disorder, a person must experience the disorder from 75% to 100% of the time for 6 months or longer. HSDD is characterized by low sexual desire, delay, infrequency or absence of orgasm during sexual activity, a tendency to ejaculate within one minute of sexual activity, and significant distress or interpersonal problems resulting in symptoms of the disorder. There are several potential causes for this condition, which can be broken down into biological and psychosocial factors. Biological causes may include nervous system disease, vascular system, low levels of testosterone, heavy alcohol consumption before sex, depression, heavy cigarette smoking, or medications. Psychosocial attributes may be early childhood sexual abuse, relationship problems such as anxiety or poor communication, psychological disorders, low physiological arousal, or stress and exhaustion (Kring et al., 2012). Treatment of this condition can take many routes; such as hormonal treatments, psychotherapy, antidepressants, or other suitable medications. The Serin Center can treat HSDD successfully using our integrative care approach.

What We Don’t Treat
We are not an emergency clinic. We are an outpatient provider so we do not have inpatient facilities. We are not a hospital and do not provide detox services for addictions. We do not treat schizophrenia or brain disorders related to advancing age such as dementia or Alzheimer’s. We are not contracted with any court system and do not provide court ordered services related to child custody or other matters.
ADHD affects 11% of school-age children (4-17) and symptoms continue into adulthood in more than 75% of children. Boys are over twice as likely to be diagnosed with ADHD (13.3%) compared to girls (5.6%)
