Severe addiction, heck, probably most addictions, require that sufferers ask for, receive, use, and follow through with professional help in order to decrease and cease the repetitive behavior(s).
Many addictions often lead to financial, familial, work/career, health, and even legal problems.
Addictions are medical illnesses (not just legal issues), with far reaching personal and social implications.
