Dr. Karen Stewart: Anthony Weiner and cybersex addiction

The Daily Mail is reporting that Anthony Weiner has checked himself into rehab to get help for sex addiction.

Weiner's numerous sexting scandals have:

  • Derailed his political career.
  • Caused his wife, Huma Abedin to leave him.
  • Triggered an FBI investigation.

That investigation also led to a bombshell of an announcement about Hillary Clinton's e-mail private server which could change the outcome this election.

Weiner now seems to be getting help for what is clearly a harmful addiction. 

Here to discuss cybersex addiction is Dr. Karen Stewart, sex therapist who specializes in sex addiction.

She believes that in order to treat sex addiction you must:

  • Admit you have a problem
  • Focus on the need to stop
  • Abstinence
  • Purge
