Dr. Drew with take on sexual addition in VH1's Sex Rehab.Dr. Drew is taking on a sexier addiction, literally.

His new VH1 show, the unfortunately titled Sex Rehab With Dr. Drew (Is the title theme Motley Crue's' "Dr. Feel Good?") will take on celebrity sex addiction.

Addiction to alcohol and drugs, or eating disorders such as anorexia and bulimia, are already familiar topics on reality TV. But the VH1 release announcing the new show reports that sex addiction is equally common -- yet harder to identify and more difficult for some to accept.

Think about it. How many comedians would make some crack along the lines of, "Where do I sign up? For the disease, not the cure."

According to VH1, the condition "afflicts roughly 3%-6% of the American population, and just like other addictions, its impact on personal lives can be devastating. The affliction can wreak havoc on the mental and physical health of those afflicted as well as destroy marriages, families, careers and even finances."

Drew and a team of other experts will take on the sex problems of eight "celebrity" patients through a certified treatment program. In traditional reality show style, the celebs will live together for 21 days and will meet with Drew in daily one-on-one and group therapy sessions

The question is how much progress can be made on a serious addictive condition in just 21 days. You can find out during the premiere, Sunday, November 1 at 10 p.m.
