Harvey Weinstein and Kevin Spacey are reportedly being treated for sex addiction at a clinic called The Meadows, near Phoenix, Arizona, and they’re paying $58,000 for the “cure”…if there is one.
But more important than the money is the CELIBACY: patients have to go without sex for at least EIGHT WEEKS. Treatment also includes meditation, group therapy, journaling, examining sexual fantasies, and “creating a relapse prevention plan.”
Founder Patrick Carnes was on “CBS This Morning” yesterday, and he said, “Like any other addiction, it’s a problem where a person loses their ability to choose. It’s a brain disease.”
He added that his program is more like a boot camp than a vacation, but he would NOT confirm that Weinstein or Spacey are actually there.
CBS also talked to a drug and alcohol counselor named Dr. Damon Raskin, who doesn’t believe in sex addiction, and thinks celebrities often use it as a publicity stunt.
“There is no good evidence showing that sex addiction is a true addiction, like drug and alcohol addiction.”
