Healthy Gamer takes an evidence-based approach to help gamers understand, embrace, and leverage what makes them different. Based on Dr. Kanojia’s years of experience working with hundreds of gamers (pros, noobs, and in-between), Healthy Gamer translates the most relevant psychiatric concepts for gamers to take control of their lives. We work with gamers to:
- Understand your brain and body and what is preventing you from reaching your goals
- Talk with other gamers who “get it” and learn from each other
- Act on the plan you create with your Recovery Coach and support group
After an overwhelming response from a Reddit AMA about video game addiction, Dr. K launched a pilot program with 15 gamers. The pilot group had a significant reduction in addictive behavior on the Young Internet Addiction score. More importantly, they are in healthy relationships, have higher grades, have gained acceptance into graduate programs, are engaged in real-world activities, and have mental clarity and purpose. They are loving their lives and are still gamers. Now, we are packaging up the best parts into a digital beta program to help gamers worldwide.
