Universal characteristics and consequences of the addiction syndrome

Abstract

(from the chapter) In this chapter, we provide an overview of the characteristics of the addiction syndrome that are shared by all, or at least by most, of the many different expressions of addiction. These expressions range from substance misuse (e.g., alcohol) to excessive behavior patterns (e.g., pathological gambling [PG]). In the second part of this chapter, we describe the shared consequences of the addiction syndrome.
