"My Shopping Addiction" captures an intimate look into the lives of young people facing a crisis brought on by a dangerous addiction to spending.

The second installment of the show, airing Monday, October 22 at 11pm ET/PT, will feature Anna who is addicted to New York City retail and facing eviction, as well as Jennae, a college dropout who blows all her money shopping instead of paying rent.

Oxygen Media recently conducted a research study about shopping addictions and compulsive spending habits surveying 1,078 U.S. adults 18-49 using an outside research firm called Research Now. The study found that a third of U.S. adults know somebody who is addicted to shopping.
