Addicted to Addicts: Survival 101 – Hooked on Games

Video games are like books and movies laced with digital “crack”. This is a comment by my guest this week, Dr. Andrew Doan, an opthamologist, neuroscientist, and researcher in the topic of video game and internet addiction. He is the author of the book “Hooked on Games”. Dr. Doan is a recognized expert in technology and video game addiction. With a doctoral degree in neuroscience, his background in molecular neuroscience adds in depth knowledge into the areas of Internet Addiction, Video Game Addiction, and Technology Addiction. He talks about support for this problem and how we can help our loved ones. AND, his personal experience on this topic is quite the story!

If you have children, adolescents, young adults in your life who are “wired” to their technology, this is a must to listen to. Perhaps they can “rewire” before it is too late! What do you think?
