A friend of mine is currently having problems with her son, who is addicted to video games. Some of the lengths that he has been to in order to get at these games is quite shocking, and as a result of this she wants him to get professional help. However, she is concerned about how this help may be given. How is childhood addiction treated? How similar is it to the path that an adult would take on the road to recovery? Of course, my friend wants her son to get better, but she is also a little bit concerned about the road that is ahead of him, too.
