(New Haven, CT: Feb. 2015) The Yale Medical School, Department of Psychiatry, Program on Recovery and Community Health is beginning to conduct research into justice addiction (revenge addiction) and the effectiveness of The Nonjustice System in reducing revenge cravings and violence. The focus of the research will be to learn more about how revenge-seeking may be a compulsive and/or addictive behavior in some people, particularly men, leading to increased frequency and intensity of cravings for and subsequent commission of acts of violence, and the effectiveness of The Nonjustice System in reducing cravings for revenge, and subsequent acts of violence, among male youth and young adults.
