Addiction to particular substances or behavior patterns can be extremely powerful and often has a crippling effect on the lives of those involved. Moss and Dyer explain the key biological, cognitive and social causes and effects of dependence, drawing together theories and evidence from psychology, pharmacology and medicine. They consider addictions to gambling, internet, sex and substance as wel as looking at treatment and prevention.
