Internet Addiction Guide
A resource for objective, useful information about Internet addiction, a theorized disorder, by John M. Grohol, Psy.D. (updated April 16, 2005) What is Internet Addiction Disorder (IAD)? What "Internet addiction disorder" (IAD) is still difficult to define at this time. Much of the original research was based upon the weakest type of research methodology, namely exploratory surveys with no clear hypothesis or rationale backing them. Coming from an atheoretical approach has some benefits, but also is not typically recognized as being a strong way to approach a new disorder. More recent research has expanded upon the original surveys and anecdotal case study reports. However, as I will illustrate below later, even these studies don't support the conclusions the authors claim.
