This is a comprehensive reference to addictive behaviors - their symptoms, causes, and treatments. Although substance abuse is a major problem in the United States, other less common addictions, such as shopping, gambling, plastic surgery, weight loss, and food can be just as destructive. From adolescents to senior citizens, millions of Americans are ruled by addictive behaviors that may destroy their lives as well as the lives of their families, friends, and even strangers. ""The A to Z of Addictions and Addictive Behaviors"" is an informative guide to addictive behaviors - their signs, symptoms, and causes, as well as how to 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. This volume also includes appendixes listing important organizations, illustrative tables of important statistics, and a detailed bibliography.
