Addiction is not well understood. There are a number of important questions that still need to be answered scientifically if we are to make any inroads in addressing this important public health problem :
- Why does addiction continue despite the serious negative and sometimes catastrophic consequences for the person with the disorder?
- Why is addiction sometimes so resistant to treatment?
- Why is relapse so common that some even consider it a defining feature of addiction?
- Why does addiction so frequently co-occur with other psychiatric disorders?
