Well, if the person is so controlled by the addiction then no, at least not a mortal sin. I believe the Catechism sheds some light on this subject as well.

In order for there to be sin, one must consciously choose to do that action. If someone is addicted to something then most likely they are being ruled by their addiction and not purposely choosing to turn away from God.
