Internet Addiction Disorder
The Internet has become extremely pervasive and seems to feature in nearly every aspect of daily life in today’s culture. While time spent online can be extremely useful and productive, sometimes people become compulsive users of the web and find that it can interfere with their work, relationships and many other “offline” aspects of everyday life.
If you or someone you know feels more comfortable with “online friends” than real ones, or finds it difficult to avoid browsing social media sites like Facebook or Twitter, online gaming, website pornography or even just compulsively “surfing the web,” you may be witnessing Internet Addiction Disorder (IAD), a problem which is becoming increasingly well-recognised by addiction counsellors and medical practitioners worldwide.
We can help you to understand your situation, recognise the signs of addiction in yourself or others and recommend the best course of treatment for you. Like any other form of addiction, internet or online gaming addiction is a form of illness and needs professional help in order to be properly treated.
Some common examples and variations of Internet addiction can include
|Facebook Addiction||Twitter Addiction||Online Gaming / Video Game Addiction|
|Online Messaging Addiction||Cybersex Addiction||Onling Gambling Addiction|
|Compulsive Online Stock Trading||Online Auctions (eBay Addiction)||Compulsive Web Surfing|
