Addictive Behaviours is the physical addiction to substances such as alcohol, heroin or barbiturates and psychological dependence on activities such gambling, sex, work, shopping and eating disorders.


Addiction is a primary, chronic disease of brain reward, motivation, memory and related circuitry. Dysfunction in these circuits leads to characteristic biological, psychological, social and spiritual manifestations. This is reflected in an individual pathologically pursuing reward and/or relief by substance use and other behaviors.
