Reading time: 1 min

Addiction to the Internet is not yet recognised as a psychiatric disorder and, thus, it is not included in the manual that is used to diagnose mental disorders (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders or DSM).

However, it is important that individuals that have a problem with the use of the Internet are assessed by a mental health professional with the aim of evaluating:

  • The level of difficulty that the individual has in order to maintain daily activities.
  • The presence of other psychiatric problems.
