There is an Important New Diagnosis for Sex Addiction

Recently, the World Health Organization announced a new diagnosis for Compulsive Sexual Behavior Disorder. Experts who treat sex addiction/compulsivity, including Seeking Integrity CEO Robert Weiss, hope the classification will help change the disorder’s perception from a moral failing to simply a medical issue. Weiss says, “It takes it out of morality, it takes it out of religion, it just makes it about, ‘Does this person have this set of issues that’s affecting his or her life?’ And either they do, or they don’t.” To learn more, check out this USA Today article.

Sex addictions are deeply misunderstood. A new classification could change that.
