Process addiction is rising among teenagers. These addictions include video game addiction, teen internet addiction, and teen exercise addiction to name a few, all can be extremely problematic. The stress of the world health problems, societal unrest, changes in educational settings, an increased expectation to stay digitally connected and raging hormonal activity of the teenage years are all contributing factors. It’s no surprise that teens are turning to process addictions to help guard themselves from these difficult feelings. Compulsive process addictions can lead to other process addictions (compounding the problem) if not properly treated.
At SunCloud Health, we work with teenagers (and families) to help them overcome process addiction(s) and gain the skills to re-engage with today’s stressors in a healthy way. We help teens lead more fulfilling lives by identify the underlying causes and how to deal with them without addictive behaviors.
