APS Healthcare Rehab and Video Game Addiction Coverage
The Dangers of Video Game Addiction
An afternoon spent saving princesses or conquering the enemy in a virtual world may seem like an attractive form of escapism, but for many video game fans this seemingly innocent pastime has turned into a darker compulsion. Video game addicts may not rely on illegal substances to get high, but the signs of dependence are not all that different:
- A need for more of the substance or behavior in order to feel satisfaction
- Irritation or depression when unable to access to substance or behavior
- Preoccupation with obtaining or engaging in the substance or behavior
- A tendency to act out or become violent when deprived of the substance or behavior
- Neglecting hygiene, health, or work, family, and/or school commitments in favor of the substance or behavior
- Lying about or hiding the amount of a substance used or amount of time spent doing the behavior
If any of the above sounds familiar, it's time to seek help. Use your APS Healthcare video game addiction coverage to get professional medical assistance, and stop the cycle of addiction in its tracks.

Getting Help for Your Video Game Addiction
If you're struggling with an addiction to video games you may have already looked for help and found it difficult to find insurance coverage. Not all insurance policies cover what is a relatively new diagnosis, but you may be able to receive assistance via coverage for mental disorders or behavioral issues. Given the parallels between video game addiction and drug and alcohol abuse some video game addicts will benefit from inpatient stays at drug rehabilitation facilities; other patients will feel more comfortable in a dedicated setting with counselors who specialize in chronic behavior disorders and cognitive retraining.
Our mission at The Fix is to remove the stigma from addiction, help you evaluate your insurance benefits, and then assist you in connecting with the rehab facility or program that's not only compatible with our APS Healthcare video game addiction coverage but also right for your specific needs.
The Cost of Beating a Video Game Addiction
The cost of treatment for video game addiction depends on the level of APS Healthcare video game addiction coverage provided by your insurance policy. Some types of treatment will be covered in full while others will require alternative funding. There are organizations willing to help and many rehab centers offer payment plans that allow you to pursue a healthy, happier future without the undue burden of astronomical upfront fees. Whatever the financial bottom line, the most important goal is freedom from your addiction, and The Fix is here to help.
