Attachment and Disorders

Years ago psychologists therorized that earlier attachments could affect us later in life.  Over the decades evidence has been piling up that this is not only true, but that attachment issues could be the root of some disorders.  Take addictions, for example - do you think it's possible that an attachment style in childhood could result in engaging in addictions later in life?  Philip J. Flores advocates for exactly this. He states that addiction is an attachment disorder. In my work I have seen this connection come to light many times over. For more clarification, please take a look at his book preview to see for yourself.
