Tiger’s Ex-Girlfriend Gets Treated for Love Addiction

by Dr. Boyce Watkins, Syracuse UniversityScholarship in Action 

I wonder if the goal of anyone who gets involved in a celebrity sex scandal is to try to become famous for something else. It doesn't matter what you're famous for, as long as people know your name. Well, Rachel Uchitel, formerly known as one of Tiger Woods' 10 billion mistresses, has taken on a new role as a public love addict. She is now going to be part of a new show hosted by Dr. Drew Pinsky, in which he addresses the challenges that addicts face. Yes, her addiction to love will be placed right there next to addictions to crack, crystal meth and alcohol. Interesting.
I scoured the web searching for a good, scientific definition of love addiction, but it was tough to find. I did find something on loveaddicts.org with 40 questions to know whether or not you're a love addict. The site was created by a counselor who gives help to those who want it. She even offers a 12-step program to help those who are addicted to love.
