Beyond the Primal Addiction is a book that delves into the psychological underpinnings of addiction. The authors of the book are experienced practitioners in the fields of addiction and psychoanalysis. The book covers a wide range of addictive behaviors including food, sex, gambling, internet usage, shopping, and work.

The book challenges the traditional approach to addiction treatment, such as the 12-Step Program, which often fails to address the underlying psychological issues that drive addictive behavior. Instead, the authors provide insights into emotional resolution and strategies for behavioral change.

The book seeks to understand addictive behaviors rather than simply pathologizing them. The authors explore the roots of addiction and the emotional, psychological, and social factors that contribute to it. They offer a new perspective on addiction that is grounded in psychoanalytic theory.

The book is illustrated with a range of vignettes that bring to life the experiences of individuals struggling with addiction. It is aimed at psychoanalysts, psychotherapists, and other mental health professionals, as well as their clients. The book provides a fresh perspective on addiction and offers hope for those struggling with addictive behaviors.
