Behavioral addictions are non-substance addictions, like constant gambling or internet addictions, and are a set of repeated behaviors that a person becomes dependent on. Substance addiction is the abuse of alcohol or drugs. Both types of addictions can become the major focus of a person’s life and can harm the individual physically, mentally, or socially.
Technology has played a crucial role to the rise of gaming, sexual and internet addictions. With a plethora of dating apps and free pornography, people nowadays seem to indulge much easier in sexually compulsive behaviors. Online gaming offers an escape from reality developing gaming addictions to a major percentage of adolescents and young adults. People also tend to obsessively check their social media and emails and are often diagnosed with an internet addiction.
Behavioral addictions can be treated. Psychotherapies or cognitive behavioral therapies (CBT) are some examples of treatments that help identify harmful patterns in behavior and help by reshaping thinking to promote healthier behaviors in one’s lifestyle.
