Driven by current events, "Dr. Drew" on HLN focuses on the human - and human behavior - at the center of the story.

Is sex addiction a legitimate disorder?

NEED TO KNOW
  • Could new research proposed allow clinicians to treat those at risk for developing hypersexual behavior?
  • Condition may be added to Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders

Should hypersexual disorder aka "sex addiction" be named as a new mental health condition in the forthcoming edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders?

A team at UCLA is proposing that it’s a legitimate disorder and think they may have the research to back it up.

HLN’s Dr. Drew gives his opinion on the matter.
