Luke F. Grande

This review of psychoanalytic theory regarding drug addiction includes ideas about familial and societal factors as well as the relevance of specific psychopharmacologic effects of various drugs. The author posits that addiction is related to a paranoid process in which, because of faulty introjects and sense of self, the addicted individual projects onto specific drugs qualities which are then reintrojected, either to defend against threatening affects and aggression or to restore a sense of well-being.
