Unique consequences of behavioral expressions of addiction

Abstract

(from the chapter) In this chapter we focus on pathological gambling, compulsive buying, kleptomania, compulsive sexual behavior, and Internet addiction. We have selected these behaviorally expressed conditions because scientists and others writing about behavioral addictions have described common elements that link them with substance addiction. In the following sections, we describe the disorders in turn as well as both their common and unique distinguishing features.
