Gaming Addiction

Addiction comes in many forms. Traditionally, people tend to relate addiction to alcohol or drugs, but in the 21st century, there are many other forms of addiction.

Gaming Addiction Treatment Beverly Hills

Addictive behavior can involve an activity or behavior as well as a substance. That’s why today’s addictions now include things like social media, pornography, and gaming. Addictive behavior occurs when a person becomes dependent on a particular substance or activity and it becomes the main focus of their life. According to this definition, someone can become addicted to just about anything.
Addictions of any kind are difficult to control because they actually change your brain chemistry, making it difficult for a person to change their behavior without professional intervention. At Blair Wellness Group of Beverly Hills, we focus on healing the various underlying conditions causing a person’s addictive behavior. To do this, we utilize psychotherapy and various evidence-based treatment modalities to focus on healing you from the inside out.

Signs of Gaming Addiction

Similar to other forms of addiction, gaming disorder is marked by a persistent need to participate in video games despite the effect it may have on school, work, and personal relationships. Those with this form of addiction will place gaming as a priority over other interests and responsibilities, and despite negative consequences.
Gaming addiction can be difficult to diagnose because there are many people who like to play video games, and they may even spend a significant amount of time doing it — but that doesn’t mean that they are addicted according to the clinical definition. However, if you notice some of the following signs and symptoms it is probably wise to seek help.

Complications of Gaming Addiction

As with many forms of addiction, gaming addiction can interfere with work or school responsibilities, damage relationships, and negatively affect a person’s mental and physical health. People who struggle with this addiction also have an increased risk of depression, and anxiety, as well as problems concentrating and paying attention. Spending prolonged periods of time being sedentary can also take its toll on the physical body, increasing the likelihood of weight gain and poor posture.
