The article focuses upon a new theoretical model concerning the debated topics of pathological addiction and possible prevention strategies, given the impact of addiction on the physical and psychical individual dimensions, which should affect the health status and social and economic functioning. Policies employed for the reduction and management of the pathological addiction have been based on normative parameters, such as laws, or technical, such as related to the social and welfare public system. Authors aim to depict a new possible strategy, which has to do with the relation between individual well-being and the environment, from a technical to a wider and multidisciplinary approach to strategy dealing with individual addiction and treatment.
Keywords: Individual, Addiction, Environment, Health, Well-Being, Pro-active Welfare.
