Most people with an addiction problems are found to be hypoglycemic (,) which causes the over-production of stress hormones. These form the symptoms of mood disorders over which you would not have conscious control.
This can be treated by going on a Hypoglycemic Diet (

I suggest that he adopt the hypoglycemic diet and if things don't improve he see a nutritional doctor or counselor to discuss these articles.
