Study Reveals Addictive Behaviors Are Not Genetically Inherited

Some emotional and psychological ailments are directly related to the abuse they endured in childhood, others tend to be more genetic in nature. However, psychological, social and environmental factors all play key prominent roles in managing addictions, along with this genetic tendency.
