A Look at Cross-Addiction
Part of Hazelden Classics for Continuing Care Series
Author: Saul Selby
This pamphlet describes the physical and psychological effects of multiple drug use.
“Cross-addiction is a transfer of addictions, the exchange of one harmful dependency for another. What happens when someone substitutes one addictive substance or behavior for another? He or she runs the rusk of developing a new addiction, returning to the original one, or both. Living with an addiction can be tough; living with two or more can seem hopeless.
There is hope, however, and reading A Look at Cross-Addiction – rereading it – is a wise step at any stage of recovery. This pamphlet explains what cross-addiction is and the forms it can take, how to begin recovering from it, and how to avoid it in the future.”
