          Watch the video above to hear Dr. Phil explain the controversial topic of hypersexuality or sex addiction, why it’s not officially recognized as a disorder and isn’t currently something that can be diagnosed.

          “Now, does that mean that what he’s doing is not self-destructive? No. It is self-destructive,” says Dr. Phil. “Does it mean it’s not change worthy? No. It is change worthy self-destructive behavior and I don’t believe he has a clue about what to do about it, how to attack this, how to get things where they need to be.”
