Drug addictions, psychoanalysis, and complexity theory: substance-induced dissociation - Drug addictions are understood, within a perspective of interpersonal psychoanalysis, taking into consideration dissociative mechanisms within a framework inspired by nonlinear dynamics theories. Considering the present situation in which psychoanalytic therapy is almost excluded from the treatment of drug addictions, in an attempt of resuming a dialogue with psychoanalysis it is assumed that drug addiction are the driving force of a particular dissociative mechanism. The perturbation connected in a nonlinear way to the effect of the drug originates and preserves a dissociative process, depicted through the concept of self-organization, an idea adopted from complexity theory. Drug addiction would therefore be especially sensitive to those psychotherapeutic approaches, such as interpersonal psychoanalysis, that emphasize the concept of dissociation.
Keywords: Drug addictions, dissociation, nonlinear dynamics systems, interpersonal psychoanalysis, selforganization
