REGAIN CONTROL OF YOUR LIFE
For many people, gaming is a way to de-stress or have fun. A Healthy Gamer is someone whose gaming is recreational and does not interfere with his or her “real” life. We work towards setting and achieving real-life goals. Healthy Gamer supports recovery with the help of a recovery coach, the support of other gamers, and a curriculum developed by gamers for gamers.
