If righteousness is love, then sin is its opposite, which is selfishness; therefore, all addiction is an outflow of sin, ie the absence of love. Broken homes, broken marriages, broken relationships, broken identities, broken dreams, broken religions, broken societies, broken planet… all in need of the strong but compassionate love of God

Romans 13:8-10

“Love Fulfills God’s Requirements

Owe nothing to anyone—except for your obligation to love one another. If you love your neighbor, you will fulfill the requirements of God’s law. For the commandments say, “You must not commit adultery. You must not murder. You must not steal. You must not covet.” These—and other such commandments—are summed up in this one commandment: “Love your neighbor as yourself.” Love does no wrong to others, so love fulfills the requirements of God’s law.”
