I think the first step is admitting that you have a problem. Next step is to find a counselor who specializes in paraphilias. My husband also has been diagnosed with voyeurism. His therapist is doing mostly behavior modification therapy. One of the "treatments" he is using involves taking note of his circumstances when he very first becomes aware of the urge - then shocking the hell out of himself with one of those shock pens you can buy at novelty shops. Not very high tech - but apparently it helps retrain the synapses of his brain...
I hope you find help - you do not want to put your family through what we have been through...believe me.
