Process addictions, or behavioral addictions, are disorders that involve addictive behaviors rather than drugs or alcohol. People with process addiction may be addicted to gambling, sex or even video games. Process addictions are common and can impair a person’s work, home and family life. If you or a loved one have a process addiction, you aren’t alone, and there are treatment options that can help.
Assessing Your Risk of Behavioral Addiction
Worried that you have a behavioral addiction? You can take a quick self-assessment to gain insight into your symptoms and whether they relate to a behavioral addiction. Please note, though, that a quiz is not an official diagnosis. You’ll need to see a medical professional to be officially diagnosed with a process addiction. However, the results of an assessment can serve as a baseline for discussion with a doctor or therapist.
