Can You Really Be Addicted to Video Games?

Play Video

Video games haven’t been around nearly as long as other addictive substances, and the study of this behavioral addiction is still in its infancy. But, as children and even adults devote more and more of their time to video games, video game addiction is expected to skyrocket.

Some may question whether video games can truly be addictive in the same way as drugs or alcohol, but that perspective misses the point. In fact, people can become addicted both to substances as well as behaviors and as with gambling , video gaming is a behavior with potential for abuse, addiction…and serious, life-impacting problems.

Video game addicts may also find themselves falling behind in other aspects of life, such as school, work, and social obligations, and spending too much money on their addiction. They may lie to cover up the increasing time they’re spending with games, and become angry, irritable, or depressed when they’re forced to step away from their gaming habits. Don’t fall victim. Teen rehab can help.

The first step is diagnosis.

Treatment For Video Game Addiction

Video game addiction is a serious issue, but complete recovery is very possible. It all begins with recognizing the severity of the habit, whether it’s within yourself, or something you’ve witnessed in a child or loved one. Denying the existence of an addiction, or acting as if the problem is smaller than it really is, won’t help: the situation will only worsen with time.

Many compulsive gamers will benefit from a detox or rehabilitation program similar to those used for substance abuse and addiction. Teen rehab programs are also available for young people struggling with compulsive gaming habits.
