Any addiction can have negative effects on the individual struggling with it and/or those around them. Screen and video game addiction is no exception, and has the specific consequence of requiring large amounts of time and attention from the afflicted individual. This can contribute to social problems, low self-esteem, anxiety, and depression. Also, it can have adverse health effects due to a stronger likelihood of physical inactivity, eye strain, bad posture, etc. Therapists who work with video game and screen addiction can help by working with individuals to recognize their unhealthy behaviors, build healthier lifestyles, and work towards accomplishing their life goals.
