Addiction is a catch-all term for a complex behavioral disorder that is typically characterized by the inability to stop the repetitive behavior in spite of the harmful consequences. The most obvious symptom is that addicts reach a point where they cannot control their own actions. They continue the compulsive behavior because it provides a temporary escape from their problems. 
About Addictions provides a perspective for clear thinking about what to do, rather than how to feel about addiction and addiction spectrum disorders. Richard Gray provides the reader with data from Psychology, Neuroscience and Neuro-Linguistic Programming. This will allow clear thoughts about the nature of these problems and what can be done. As he says in his introduction, this is a book to think with. It is short on doctrine and long on practical information about the nature of addictions and the structure of motivations for change. Gray provides information about diagnosis, reports on studies that say something very important about ‘addictive substances’ and research in neuroscience, motivation, and preference hierarchies. He provides techniques and perspectives from Neuro-Linguistic Programming to suggest some novel approaches to treating the problem.
Tune in to this segment of The NLP View Radio Show, as host, Donna Blinston is joined by author, Richard Gray to discuss his best-selling book, About Addictions: Notes from Psychology! Stay Tuned!
