Home Addiction Web Addicts Have A Hard Time Finding Help

Who would have thought that there could an addiction with Mafia Wars, a Facebook game. Well, there is and here is the story about it.
Michael Polomny, an addict who is located in Clay County, Florida, spends anywhere between twelve to sixteen hours a day, uses three computers, and switches between five to seven facebook accounts, just to play Mafia Wars. His addiction began to take over his desire to go to work and started to break up the relationship between his family. Michael’s addiction went so far to where he ended up getting in a fight that landed him up with charges of domestic assault.
Luckily on his behalf, he was found not guilty in the Clay County trial that ended on Wednesday. To some people, this addiction may not be the same as a junkie trying to get off heroin, but it is still the same emotions bottled up inside as well as the same thinking patterns.
With Michael, his addiction to online social gaming is severe and there is little help out there. He stated in court that there was difficulty finding counseling for his Internet addiction. Treatment centers are out there for the addiction , but for the specific Internet addiction, studies and research are still on the way.
All in all, addiction comes in many different shapes, size, and forms. As the world becomes more and more advanced, newer studies and treatment centers are arriving.
