Treatment research on the paraphilias is limited and confounded by the larger treatment literature on sex offenders. Research suggests that sex offenders can benefit from treatment. Anti-androgen and cognitive-behavioural techniques appear to have the best likelihood of reducing recidivism. Data regarding the effectiveness of selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors and other psychotropic medication are too limited for allowing conclusions to be made.
