My Strange Addiction is a TLC documentary television series about people with unusual compulsive behaviors. These range from eating specific non-food items and ritualistic daily activities to bizarre personal fixations or beliefs.
Despite the title of the show, few of the show's subjects have what would medically be classified as true addiction, neither conventional (substance-related) nor behavioral.
Rather, the cause of their behavior varies and may include a variety of psychiatric diagnosis. Examples of disorders on the show are:
Obsessive compulsive disorder, Pica (disorder), Schizophrenia, Psychosis, Alzheimer's disease, Exercise bulimia, Trichotillomania, Body dysmorphic disorder, Dermatillomania, etc.
