Sex addiction is a psychiatric disorder!!

According to American Psychiatric Association report, Sex addiction, in which sufferers 've relentless sexual urges, will soon be formally recognized as a psychiatric disorder! The "addiction" is being discussed by experts for inclusion in the Diagnostic & Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders published by the American Psychiatric Association.
   
The manual is considered the definitive guide to what constitutes a genuine psychological disorder rather than an imaginary one. Sex addiction actually became highly publicized when celebrities such as Tiger Woods & Russell Brand sought treatment for the condition. Woods checked in for treatment in 2010 after admitting cheating on his wife Elin Nordegren with a string of different women. The golfer underwent a six-week intensive program at the Pine Grove clinic in Mississippi, designed to treat sexual addiction, sexual anorexia & sexual trauma.

The UK's health service is starting a preliminary project for sex addiction treatment, which experts say, could spark a boom in drug companies re-packaging anti-depressants & sex-drive-suppressants. The Priory chain of clinics say its patients "work on themselves for eight or nine hours a day in group therapy, in individual sessions with their psychiatrists & with a wide range of trained therapists".

Clinical psychologist & sex therapist Dr Janet Hall said that patients with sex addiction problems now make up the majority of her clients. She said that celebrity treatment has contributed to the rise. "It's saying 'if the famous & wealthy are addicts & get into trouble, I am not alone nor am I a horrible nasty person'."
