Too often addiction is perceived to be merely a moral weakness or purely a brain disease, ignoring the deep personal pain that can permeate the lives of the addicted. Albanese, see addictions primarily as a kind of self medication - a self medication that can temporarily soothe anxiety or pain, but that ultimately wreaks havoc on the lives and health of both the addicted and their loved ones.
Understanding Addiction as Self Medication looks at a range of addictions, including alcohol and drugs, and clearly explains how to understand other addictive behaviors through the lens of the self-medication hypothesis.
