Dr. Alec Miller was interviewed by CBS NY about the new classification of Video Game Addiction as a disorder.

The World Health Organization (WHO) is now saying that the obsession can become such an addiction it warrants being classified as an official disorder by the group.

“It has been an unbelievable avalanche of concern in the last few months since ‘Fortnite’ came to the forefront,” Dr. Alec Miller told CBS2’s Tony Aiello.

WHO has been studying the issue and now has formally classified “gaming disorder” as a mental health condition.
