“Jane’s Addiction” is a true depiction of the human condition. Jane, who has been suffering from an addiction to gambling, finds herself struggling with her family’s disapproval and attempts to cope with the pressures of society, in an effort to be loved, accepted and valued. She is portrayed as an example to us all. The story is a powerful one, full of hope and redemption.
“Jane’s Addiction” tells the story of the journey of an addict from being just another “typical” addict in society, to overcoming his addiction. Jane realizes that she is suffering from a dependency on gambling which is destroying her life. But the addict Jane was once is no longer. With the help of his close friends, Jane sets out to change her life and begin a new chapter in her life. Jane discovers how to control his mind and what it takes to make him realize that he can be happy without the need of gambling.
The first episode of “Jane” provides the viewer with a solid understanding about the nature of addiction. This addiction is an emotional one. The addict is emotionally connected to the object of his addiction; therefore, his emotional attachments to it prevent him from giving up and seeking professional help. When he finally seeks professional help, it is only because he believes that the addiction is the problem, not the person who suffers from it. This is when “Jane” gives us the message that we must make a commitment to ourselves and our loved ones if we want to overcome a problem; otherwise, the addiction will consume us.
Jane realizes the dangers of his addiction when he sees himself falling down the slippery slope toward self-destruction. He begins to experience the intense anxiety of having an addiction on his back. His friends help him get through this difficult time by providing him with support and a new understanding of his relationships and himself.
Once Jane makes the decision to accept his addiction and help others overcome theirs, the addiction is no longer a concern. This is when he realizes that there is a difference between addiction; while addiction is a serious issue, the true solution lies in the fact that the addict realizes that there is a cure to the problem.
“Jane” offers many other solutions to Jane’s addiction.

He finds a support group where he learns new coping techniques to help deal with his emotions. This includes the ability to create healthy relationships with his family, peers and society, and the ability to become a better person.
The last episode of “Jane” shows Jane reaching a turning point, but it is only after he has completely overcome his addiction that he realizes the meaning of his family. As he goes through his journey, it becomes apparent that if he does not seek help, he may lose his family and never have them again.
“Jane” is not a perfect representation of addiction. The main character is a drug addict, but this does not mean that he represents all addicts. He is a representative for those addicts who choose a new direction.
Addiction is a mental illness, a symptom of a biological problem. It is not a disease that can be cured and there is no such thing as a quick fix. This is why the only way to truly end the addiction is to address the underlying causes.
John Stanley and his team of researchers found ways to treat addiction and teach addicts how to avoid the same pitfalls. In the end, the goal of “Jane” is to teach those who suffer from addictions the tools and knowledge that allow them to break free from their addiction. in an honest, respectful, non-condescapist manner.
“Jane” will help those suffering from an addiction to realize their potential and begin a new life, so that they may continue to live that new life as David Paulson teaches “Jane.” This is the kind of help that you need if you suffer from an addiction; this is what the addict is missing.
