Addiction is a state of psychological or physical dependence that can develop from any source capable of stimulating an individual. A person can be addicted to substances, like drugs and alcohol, or can be addicted to activities, like gambling, gaming, and sex.


Addiction is treatable and enables a person to counteract the neurological and behavioral changes addiction has caused to gain better control of their lives. Although frequently misunderstood, research suggests that long-lasting recovery requires treatment of the underlying factors driving addiction. Treatment may include work on the below tasks.
