My son can't stay off the computer, he's on it for hours a day. We've tried everything but nothing's working. Is there a program we can try?

There's a stigma around behavior addictions like gambling, stealing, sex, or internet gaming. Even people in recovery from substance abuse disorders seem to think that an internet addiction isn't a real thing. That being said, behavior addictions are a real thing that trigger the same responses in the brain as chemical addictions. There are treatment centers and counselors who can help with these specific behavior addictions.
