People with strange addictions need help just like people with drug or alcohol addictions. This could be therapy, counselling or support groups. I've watched the series "My Strange Addiction" just last week with the top ten strangest addictions. I remember a woman addicted to eating her husband's ashes and another woman addicted to enhancing her breast beyond normal size. The former woman was said to seek help though. She went through counselling although the documentary reported that she didn't push through it. The other woman seems to not want any help at all and even continued enlarging her breasts despite the disapproval of her children.
