The persistent and compulsive engagement in th'ese addictions despite serious health, social and legal consequences is a common feature- Emerging data indicate that self control mechanisms ate critical in perpetuating this compulsive engagement in addictive behaviors^Stress, which plays a key role in addiction, other psychiatric illnesses and in many chronic diseases, alsb facilitates lapses in self control. Although researchoh the links between stressand addiction, stress and psychiatric disorders and stress and chronic diseasesexists, systematicresearcho'ri the intetactidris between Stress, self control and addictibn have been rare. This three-wayinterplay between Stress;: selfcbntrbl and addictibri is complex^arid requires ah interdisciplinary (ID) conceptual ffarhewbrkwith cbflabtiratiye telffi^-based approaches;bfstOdy that include the rhuitiple brain, bbdy, behavioral and sbciai syslerhSVWe therefore^ stress, self control and addiction GSSA) tfiat brings^togetherbver 50 leading'scientists;who conduct research relevant to a nurhber of Nlfi slitutes^MH^lA, NlDArNlAAA, NHLBI/NGI;NfGHD, NllDidK, NlEHS, NINDS, NIDtD).
