This activity is designed for you to explore the continuum of an addictive behavior of your choice.
Addictive behavior appears in stages. The earliest stage is non-use, which finally leads up to out-of-control dependence. The stages in between are important to identify, as it is much easier to correct an early-stage issue as opposed to a late-stage problem.
After reviewing the module readings and tasks, use the module notes as a reference and alcohol or substance abuse addiction as an example to identify the various levels of addiction.
You may choose to develop a time line identifying the stages or develop a written essay (no more than 500 words in Word format) to describe the escalation of addictive behaviors.
