In brief: Yes but
The depression is secondary to the addiction- treat the addiction first then reassess whether depressed feelings continue to persist.
See a professional who specializes in addiction. You are not likely to get the help you need from just reading a book! self help is fine , like 12 step programs , but seeking help is the first step...

What are you addicted to? Games, work, shopping, pornography, music, videos? Give your home computer, pad, or cell phone, maybe all of them, to a friend.
Get some counseling help for the specific issue you are having your addiction to. Depression can promote behaviors that increase or sustain internet addiction. Get medical help, medication, and counseling help for your depression.
