Video games are an extremely popular form of entertainment. In fact, it's estimated that 67 percent of American adults aged 18 and over play video games. But amidst the fun, there is a dark side to video gaming. Some people play so frequently that this activity becomes an addiction that causes both mental and physical health problems, as well as the loss of relationships, jobs, and money. Detoxing from Video Games 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.
