Most people change their addictive behaviors on their own, with very little or no professional help. Am I Addicted is designed to guide you or a loved one in addressing a wide array of addictions, including overdrinking, opioid use, gambling and procrastination. Dr. Bishop uses a lifetime of knowledge and experience, as well as current research and data-driven approaches, to give succinct and easy to follow advice for accelerating and maintaining changes in behavior. The book may also be extremely useful for students, mental health counselors, social workers, psychologists and others who work with people who have addictive or semi-addictive problems.

It covers all the important scientific information about addiction that is relevant to an addicted person in a format that is exceptionally inviting and easy to use.
