This topic of how genetics and addiction factor in together has been a constant debate. While there is much research that links a genetics and addiction it is important to know that not everyone who is predisposed for mental disorder such as addiction will become an addict. Addiction is not a purely biological result but rather a bio-psychosocial result. While biology certainly is a huge influence in determining one’s fate, psychological factors as well as social factors play into the equation. For example, even those without a biological predisposition can become an addict. The disease model of addiction is one to consider yet there are other models of addiction that prove otherwise.
