Internet Addiction Disorder (IAD)



Definition

Internet addiction disorder refers to the problematic use of the Internet, including the various aspects of its technology, such as electronic mail (e-mail) and the World Wide Web.


Causes and symptoms

Causes

-mood-altering potential .For example, the person with an Internet addiction may feel a similar "rush" from booting up their computer and going to their favorite web sites.
-stress, or anxiety, may "self-medicate" by using the Internet in the same way that some people use alcohol or drugs of abuse to self-medicate the symptoms of their mental disorder.
-social. Some affected persons may lack the social skills that would enable them to meet people in person rather than online.

Symptoms

-excessive time. A person might have difficulty cutting down on his or her online time even when they are threatened with poor grades or loss of a job.
-lack of sleep, fatigue,or poor job performance.
-a decreased deal in social relationships and activities. They may be bad-tempered when offline, or angry toward anyone who questions their time on the Internet.

Treatments

-advocate self-discipline from the Internet. As society becomes more dependent on computers, it will be difficult for a computer-literate person to avoid using the Internet.
-learning how to use the Internet in moderation, in a way similar to the way that people with eating disorders need to come to terms with food.
-medication as an antidepressant or anti-anxiety drug.

Preventions

-they should be careful in exploring the types of application that are used on the Internet.
-to engage in social activities outside the Internet.
-mental health workers should investigate methods in which to participate in the performance of new technology rather than waiting for its consequences.
