A key to Tech Wellness is being aware and understanding exactly what Internet Addiction is and whether or not you or someone you love may be affected.

Even some professionals have doubted that internet addiction is real, but it's getting harder and harder to deny that this is a big societal issue that needs to be dealt with.

Research over the twenty years has identified Internet Addiction as a new and often unrecognized clinical disorder that impact a user’s ability to control online use causing relational, occupational, and social problems.
