Technology and Play Based Issues are Complex Mental Health Issues

Treatment for process addictions like gambling and video game disorder can be more challenging compared to substance-based forms of addiction. Process addictions can often look different from each person, making it difficult to identify and diagnose without a thorough assessment. Furthermore, the physiological properties that come with these types of addictions can be more difficult for clinicians to address since individuals are often engaging in the behavior voluntarily. Treatment involves providing support for patients as they learn new coping skills and behaviors for managing their addiction, which may require frequent monitoring and follow-up sessions.
