The authors analyze the most important theoretical models in the field of drug addiction: the moral, the medical, the psychodynamic and the psychiatric model, with particular reference to the concepts of comorbidity and dual diagnosis. It is pointed out as these approaches invariably lead to a dichotomy between the "defect/process" model and the "conflict/development" model. The proposed hypothesis is an attempt to reconcile the opposite points of view in an unitary vision: on the basis of the fundamental psychopathological elements (drive dyscontrol and dependence), the addicts are so distributed into three areas, different for nosography and treatment.
