Summary:
Addictions come in many forms. But they have in common the fact that an addicted person has a heightened need or strong craving for a particular substance or activity. In "Addictions and Risky Behaviors: Cutting, Bingeing, Snorting, and Other Dangers", author Rene C. Rebman discusses alcohol and drug addiction, inhalant abuse, smoking, eating disorders, self-mutilation, and Internet addiction. She looks at the causes and characteristics of all these addictions as well as what can help people struggling with them.
