As you begin to read and study the text, The Addictive Personality, it is important to quickly understand Craig Nakken’s intent. The author clearly describes what happens to the personality once an individual becomes addicted to the “object or event of choice” (chemicals, food, sex, gambling, shopping, etc.).

Understanding Addiction / Client Education

Once addiction takes hold, it creates an addictive persona. That persona completely replaces the personality of the addicted person. It dominates the life of that person, is predictable in its behavior patterns, and it will lead to death.

Through the recovery process a healthy personality can emerge. For the person who becomes addicted, the pain, anger and upheaval of real life is too much to handle. Through the recovery process, it is possible to gain the skills and insights to understand and avoid previous thought and behavior patterns that gave the addictive persona a foothold in the first place. Release and acceptance are based on the idea that you can no longer control the situation; not the addictive situation or the world around you. Rather, you must release that need for control and accept that only the Higher Power can control.

Through honesty, release and acceptance, a spiritual life can develop, and a full, healthy and grateful personality can emerge. Learn how millions of people experience real recovery.
