Substitute Addiction: A Concern for Researchers and Practitioners
Sussman, Steve; Black, David S.
Journal of Drug Education, v38 n2 p167-180 2008
An understanding of the role of substitute addictions remains unclear. This article examines the range and possible reward functions of substitute addictions. We suggest that prevention education and treatment need to take into account substitute addictions as an influential aspect of recovery. Research is needed to better understand the prevalence and functions of, and solutions to substitute addictions.
