Impulse Control Disorder and Addiction

Impulse control disorder is characterized by an individual’s inability to resist powerful, often self-destructive temptations and impulses. Impulse control disorders are incredibly diverse, ranging from compulsions to go shopping to urges to burn property to the ground. The negative consequences of impulse control disorder can be tempered through treatment.

 Impulse control disorder does not refer to one specific illness. According to neuro innovations in clinical science, impulsive behavior breaks down into different stages, including the impulse itself, growing tension, the feeling of pleasure and relief from fulfilling the urge, and subsequent guilt, especially if the action was a negative one or if the person was avoiding the action.
