In the third solo episode, I address the question, "What is an addiction?"  I provide an overview of the diagnostic criteria of an addiction per the Diagnostic Statistical Manual 5.  I share my early training experiences in providing Addictions Treatment, including giving up a behavior for 2 weeks and attending recovery meetings.  Types of treatment and resources are also provided.
