In brief: Not Formally

This is a term that has been around a long time but is not recognised formally in the psychiatric literature.
What is often a focus of treatment and psychological testing is the precursors, history, and manifestations of addiction. There are personality factors that also predispose oneto ddeveloping an addiction.
