Until recently, few stars would admit to a sex addiction, much less seek treatment for it. But that has all changed in recent years. In an effort to save crumbling marriages and dashed careers in wake of very public infidelities, celebrities are checking into rehab.
Keep clicking to see which stars sought treatment for it.
Tiger Woods In Rehab
Golfer Tiger Woods, seen here at a September 2009 NFL game in Miami, checked into a rehab program in Arizona earlier this year in an effort to salvage his career and his marriage. Woods, set to return to golf next week, has not played in a tournament since reports of multiple affairs surfaced after the golfer was involved in a car accident near his home in late November.
Jesse James in Rehab
West Coast Choppers CEO Jesse James, left, seen here with his wife, actress Sandra Bullock, at a Hollywood movie premiere, is the latest celebrity to check himself into treatment after reports of multiple mistresses surfaced. His spokesman said he was seeking professional help to deal with "personal issues" after a cheating scandal that has put his nearly five-year marriage to Bullock on the line. The representative did not specify the type of treatment facility, but published reports have said James is being treated for sex addiction.

David Duchovny In Rehab
Actor David Duchovny, seen here at the VH1 party on Saturday, July 12, 2008, in Los Angeles, had faced rumors of sex addiction before he was married, so it was no surprise when in the summer of 2008, he checked himself into the Meadows clinic in Arizona. He later underwent further therapy in Pennsylvania, but it couldn't stop the breakup of his marriage to actress Tea Leone. They separated later that year.
