HEALTHY GAMER IS DEVELOPED BY WORLD-CLASS ADDICTIONS EXPERT DR. ALOK KANOJIA.
Dr. Kanojia works at the world’s top medical institutions including Harvard Medical School, McLean Hospital and Massachusetts General Hospital.
More importantly, he is a gamer who almost failed out of college. He graduated with a 2.5 GPA, got his own gaming habits under control, went on to do his psychiatry residency through Harvard Medical School. During his training, Dr. Kanojia noticed a lack of academic knowledge of video gaming addiction. Because the brightest minds in psychiatry are also of a different generation than the vast majority of video gamers, Dr. Kanojia set out to create a body of knowledge himself.
He interviewed hundreds of gamers and created extensive psychiatric profiles of gamers that now can be used to inform treatment plans.
Dr. Kanojia combines cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), eastern meditative techniques, cutting edge neurochemistry research and successful addiction interventions to write a new approach to video gaming addiction. His focus on real-world success goes beyond addiction treatment to give gamers the tools they need to re-engage with the real world on their terms.
Today, Dr. Kanojia works in many different forms to empower people to take on video gaming addiction:
