If the nymphomania is secondary to a catch of toxic products (cocaine, crack ...), the treatment will have to privilege the stop of their consumption. By getting help to get rid of this addiction.

If the nymphomania is secondary to a neurological disorder, the treatment is that of the cause. When sexual behavior is uncontrollable and risky (eg in dementia), medications may be prescribed.

For people suffering from long-lasting nymphomania with associated psychic dependence, group therapies can be very useful. Directed by a therapist, these groups offer a "weaning" in 12 stages punctuated by discussions with the other participants. Anonymity is respected and weaning is free.

In all cases, sexual risk-taking (with respect to Sexually Transmitted Diseases) should be sought, and a blood test will be necessary.
