Addiction is a complex condition that is generally characterized by persistent drug use or problematic behaviors, despite the knowledge of the negative consequences.

Although substance use may be the activity that is most commonly associated with addiction, a person is capable of developing an addiction to certain behaviors, such as gambling, social media, etc.


Addiction impacts many parts on one’s life.

This anthology is going to delve into the different types of addiction, the consequences of addiction, and how addiction impacts the lives of those infected by it.

  2. Do the authors get compensated for their work?
    Also, your website’s graphics won’t load. Not my computer. All other sites are working just fine.



  3. What is the status of this project?


    • Hi Elliot, thank you for your inquiry. Sadly, my son passed away from addiction while submissions were open. It’s been a soar spot for me, and I am trying to work through it, hence the reason this one has taken so long to accomplish. 😦
