Behavioral Addiction Videos


Videos in this category depict and explain behavioral addictions. A behavioral addiction is an addiction that is not characterized by a dependency on drugs or alcohol, but by compulsive behaviors. The compulsive behavior is practiced with such obsession and frequency that it causes serious negative consequences to the person. Such consequences may be emotional, physical, financial or social. Despite negative consequences the individual cannot control compulsions to engage in the behavior. These behaviors also take a significant amount of time out of the individual's day, so much that it detracts from other activities or tasks. Behavioral addictions include shopping, cutting, eating or gambling and more.
