Attachment Theory & Addiction(A Different Perspective)

Updated: Dec 5, 2019

There are many theories about why people become addicts. One theory is that addiction is related to a person’s attachment style. Attachment can be thought of as how secure or insecure a person feels in their relationships. It is established during infancy and is related to the level of confidence one felt as a baby.

Your earliest childhood experiences can shape you for your entire life. We'll delve deep into how those experiences can make you more or less prone to addiction. I believe if you can understand what causes addiction, you can BEAT addiction.

This is the first video in the new series I've created on understanding attachment theory and addiction. If you want to know how childhood attachments are formed and how that can set us up for addiction, watch this video and subscribe to our channel.
