""The Encyclopedia of Addictions and Addictive Behaviors"" is an A-to-Z reference to addictive behaviors, their signs, symptoms, and causes, as well as how to recognize and treat them. More than 300 entries provide a comprehensive overview of individual addictions as well as overlapping issues, such as emotional problems, family dysfunction, and difficulties with employment.
