The term addiction has come to refer to a wide and complex range
of behaviours. While addiction most commonly refers to compulsive
use of substances, including alcohol, prescription and illegal drugs,
cigarettes and food, it's also used to describe excessive indulgence
in activities such as work, exercise, shopping, sex, the Internet
In this section we have compiled information, resources and testimonies on all topics that fall under addiction.
For the most part, addicts hide their addictions from everyone they come in contact with including family, friends and colleagues. Here we have compiled some materials that can help you to identify if you, or someone you know, has a problem.
