Digital Dependency Treatment

While the use of technology has brought about some fantastic advances and made certain tasks much easier, the reliance that presents itself has led to the skyrocketing rates of digital dependency and addiction. Wearable technology, virtual reality, and smartphones, are just some of the devices which have helped “digitized” our lives more than every before. Given their easy access, these issues affect people of all ages and genders. Problematic digital dependency, namely video games and internet technology, is characterized by an unhealthy over-consumption of digital technology.
