Are These Addictions Real?
It can be hard to believe that some people have addictions as unusual as today’s guests on "Anderson," who are addicted to sleeping with a blow dryer, smelling moth balls, and a car. Anderson is assured that the addictions from which the guests suffer are, in fact, real.
"This is real. I've worked with many addicts and their families, and this is affecting every part of their lives," says Dr. Mike Down, a psychotherapist and addiction recovery expert.
Dr. Mike explains how addictions to drugs and alcohol really aren't so different from the more unusual addictions described on the "Strangest Addictions Ever!" show.
