This article contributes to the understanding of the problem of addictions from the theoretical approaches of psychoanalysis. To this end, the positions of Freudian psychoanalysis, Lacanian psychoanalysis and other psychoanalytic currents were reviewed in response to the following research questions: How are addictions understood from a psychoanalytic frame of reference? How do Freudian theory and Lacanian theory approach the understanding of addiction? What do other psychoanalytic currents propose about this problem? It was found that it is a field of constant publication of psychoanalytic literature, that it is a growing clinical phenomenon and that continuous research is required.
