Addiction is often a substitute for healthy attachments, and prevents the addict from getting their needs met in a healthy way. Eric Berne wrote of our innate hunger for attachment (recognition hunger) and for stimulus. These hungers can be seen even in newborn babies. Healthy neurological development depends on both attachment and stimulus. Throughout life, we continue to grow and mature through meeting these psychological needs. The focus of this presentation is, how difficulties in relational needs may contribute to addiction, and how addiction perpetuates those difficulties. The profound lifestyle changes that are part of successful recovery from addiction will also be discussed. Theories from transactional analysis including psychological hungers, relational needs and contaminations and discounting shall also be discussed.
