Addiction Psychology

The American Psychiatric Association describes Addiction as a complex condition in which there is uncontrolled use of a substance despite harmful consequences. People with addictions have an intense focus on using a certain substance or pursuing an activity or behavior to the point where the person’s ability to function in day to day life becomes impaired. People keep using the substance even when they know it is causing or will cause problems.

Addiction is a complex, but treatable, disease that affects brain function and behavior. Explore below to learn more about addiction and treatment.
