According to the Pew Research Center, 69 percent of adults and 81 percent of teens in the United States use social media. While social media can help people stay in touch with friends and family and stay up to date on the world, it also has a dark side. Studies show that people who abuse social media face an increased risk of anxiety, depression, and loss of self-esteem. Additionally, misinformation on social media can cause people to make poor decisions about health, political, and other issues. Detoxing from Social Media is one of eight titles in the Detoxing From series. Each title spotlights a major addiction; discusses its negative physical and mental effects, as well as its effects on family and other loved ones; and provides an overview of treatment options for the addiction. Profiles of those who are battling addictions are provided to help readers understand that anyone can develop an addiction. Readers will learn that addictions can be overcome with the help of therapy, drug treatments, self-help groups, support family and friends, and other resources.
