Addictions: No I Don’t Have A Problem

“The U.S. has elevated addiction to a national icon,” says author of The Diseasing of America, Stanton Peele, “It’s our symbol; it’s our excuse.”

An addiction is defined as a powerful disease that can eliminate free will. These can be developed over long or short periods of time and can take on many forms. However, society recognizes the need for treatment with certain addictions more than others.
