VH1 and Dr. Drew Team Up Again for an Intimate Look at a Taboo Topic With 'Sex Rehab With Dr. Drew'

'Sex Rehab With Dr. Drew' is Set to Premiere, Sunday, November 1 at 10pm

Online Sneak Peek of Premiere Episode Begins Monday, October 26 on VH1.com

LOS ANGELES, Oct. 6 -- VH1, Dr. Drew and Irwin Entertainment have expanded their documentary series on addiction to examine one of society's most taboo topics, sex addiction, in the upcoming series "Sex Rehab With Dr. Drew." The series is set to premiere on VH1 on Sunday, November 1 at 10pm*.

Addictions are nothing new, and most people are aware of those involving alcohol, drugs, and eating disorders such as anorexia and bulimia, but few know about and understand sex addiction. It 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.

Dr. Drew and a team of the nation's foremost experts on sexual addiction will guide eight patients through an intensive state of the art program. Living together for 21 days, they'll meet with Dr. Drew in daily one-on-one and group therapy sessions in order to get to the root of their compulsive behavior.

Dr. Drew is a highly respected practicing MD, is board certified in addiction medicine and assistant clinical professor of psychiatry at KECK USC School of Medicine, who will once again give viewers an unflinching look at exactly how the rehab process works and what it feels like for participants. Dr. Drew hopes to use his patients to humanize the process and show viewers that treatment is a viable way to break the cycle of addiction.

Beginning Monday, October 26 fans can catch a sneak peek of the season's first episode on VH1.com - one week before the on-air premiere. Subsequent episodes will be available on VH1.com the morning after they air. Additional video content from "Sex Rehab With Dr. Drew" including extras from each episode will be available on VH1.com and on VH1 Mobile throughout the season.

"Sex Rehab With Dr. Drew" is executive produced by John Irwin and Bruce Toms for Irwin Entertainment. Dr. Drew Pinsky and Howard Lapides are also executive producing. Jeff Olde, Jill Holmes, and Noah Pollack are executive producers for VH1.

VH1 connects viewers to the music, artists and pop culture that matter to them most with TV series, specials, live events, exclusive online content and public affairs initiatives. VH1 is available in 95 million households in the U.S. VH1 also has an array of digital channels and services including VH1Classic, VH1 Soul, VH1 Mobile, VH1Games and extensive broadband video on VH1.com.
