I think you mean: Is the word "addict" an adjective?

The answer is no. It's a noun or a verb. A person who is addicted is an addict.

In the phrase "addict radio", the noun "addict" modifies the noun "radio". Compound nouns are common in English.

Isn’t addicted an adjective, though?

Inconsistently, Dictionary.com calls it an adjective in to be addicted to drugs yet gives the example addicted to video games under the verb category. I really can’t see it as anything but an adjective.

I would say so. Yes. I didn't see the word "addicted" anywhere in the original question though, so I didn't mention it in my reply.

Ah, you said It’s a noun or a verb, so I assumed that addicted in your example was meant to be a verb. And I can’t say I’ve ever encountered addict used as a verb.

Nothing on COCA?

Google has examples. I can't quote them, but one was something like "Junk food manufacturers are trying to addict us to chemicals".

A few.
CalifJim"Junk food manufacturers are trying to addict us to chemicals".
Right. I probably have heard it then.

It’s curious to note that I can’t find one dictionary that gives a verb example for the word. Just adjectives.
