Choice Theory

Choice Theory

Choice theory offers an alternative explanation for addiction. It dismisses the notion that people become addicted because of a disease. Instead, they are viewed as making a choice to take the path into substance abuse. They will have made this decision based on faulty reasoning. In the future they can learn to make better choices.
