Internet & Video Game Addiction
Two of our less-common but still-challenging
addictions are Internet and video game addiction. Though less threatening,
in most cases, to the immediate health of the addict, they are certainly
capable of destroying lives. And destroy they will if not treated.
With the advant of the Internet both video game and internet addiction
have become widespread problems.
It all starts with someone willing to contact
Lifeline Interventions and let us know that there’s someone
in a crisis situation. With internet addiction and video game addictions,
the individual making a call is reaching out for help for someone
who is incapable of helping themselves.
Gambling Addiction Interventions
Though this is true for other interventions as
well, the denial is less related to a psychological barrier manufactured
by a toxin. With gabling addiction, it’s a behavioral disorder
or some psychological effect that is associated with the euphoria
of potentially winning. Most addictions are deep and emotional experiences,
with sub-surface issues rising up to rear their ugly heads.
Again, a cry for help, a desire to see change
happen in the life of someone special is all it takes — before
the addict hurts themselves and their lives, permanently.
Hopefully, intervention can help people to understand
that they’re not all alone. Family members, friends, and specialists
who are willing and able to offer their love, thoughts, ideas, and
feelings can help an intervention addict become healthy
again. With a non-confrontational approach, fully supportive of
the addict, Lifelines Intervention will knock down the walls of
denial and open up the possibilities for recovery and survival.
Make the change for someone who can’t help themselves.
That’s why it’s important to understand
that some people don’t have anyone to reach out a helping
hand. Lifeline Interventions understands and promotes full-awareness
in addiction intervention. And people who have an addiction or eating disorder need
someone they can believe in — someone who can hold their hand,
give them support, offer kindness, and get them to take the first
steps from transport to treatment, on their way to recovery and
