This short paper offers an introduction to the use of psychodynamically ori-ented group therapy in treating pathological addiction. The current forms of addic-tion are rooted in narcissistic frailty, a condition in which individuals often resort to various forms of addiction in an attempt to counterbalance a frail and vulnera-ble Self.

Keywords: Narcissistic frailty, Multiple levels of care, Addiction, Group therapy.
