By Craig Nakken
#7560. For nearly a decade, The Addictive Personality has helped people understand the process of addiction. Now, through this second edition, author Craig Nakken brings fresh depth and understanding of how an individual becomes an addict.
Going beyond the definition that limits dependency to the realm of alcohol and other drugs, he uncovers the common denominator of all addiction and describes how the process is progressive. New light is shed on:
- Genetic factors tied to addiction
- Cultural influences on addictive behaviors
- The progressive nature of the disease
- Steps to a successful recovery
The author examines how addictions start, how society pushes people toward addiction, and what happens inside those who become addicted.
