There are no video gaming addiction specific treatment centers. That being said your son would probably benefit from therapy with a team consisting of a psychologist and a psychiatrist who are experienced in working with teenagers. You can find such a treatment team by asking friends, co-workers, the County Medical Society or even the patient assistance office at your local hospital.

The bone and alloever body pain? Probably not related to the gaming issue; I'd consult with an internal medicine specialist for this.

Make sense?

It's safe for you to press the positive feedback button now if you so desire. And, never fear, even after you press that button I'll still be right here to continue helping you, but, as I do work for tips, I want to make sure you are happy before rating me.
