About the book:

An understanding of addiction theory is vital to understanding addiction itself. Theory of Addiction takes theory development from a simple rational addiction model, adding elements such as compulsion, self-control and habit, to explain the big observations in the field. As well as explaining and evaluating the arguments of each of the prevailing schools of thought, the book develops a new, synthetic theory of addiction that brings together the diverse elements of current models.

Designed to enable students, practitioners and researchers to establish a starting point in the labyrinthine world of addiction theory, Theory of Addiction supports abstract thinking with concrete and realistic scenarios, underlining the centrality of theoretical understanding to working with addiction.
