IASGA is a multidisciplinary professional community, which was created to unite specialists from different scientific fields and professional orientations, who face the problem of game addictions, such as gambling disorder, Internet gaming disorder or other forms of addictions related to the Internet or the media, as well as the negative consequences of this phenomenon for children and adults and society as a whole. Specialists of different areas: psychologists, psychotherapists, physicians of the general practice, sociology, lawyers, teachers and just concerned socially active people have united on the goal of a thorough objective examination.

Game addictions in all forms of manifestation and different types of Internet addictions are quite a new problem that modern society is facing today. We can easily call these types of dependencies the global problem of the 21st century. It is growing extremely fast, subordinating entire generations, and is little understood by society due to the lack of accessible and objective information about the negative consequences of this phenomenon.

In addition to researching the mechanisms of development and negative consequences of these types of addictions, our goal is to develop effective methods of prevention, treatment and comprehensive rehabilitation of people and families who have already faced such problems in their lives.

Scientific research that has already been conducted in this area shows that the products of the game industry, as well as the information content of the Internet space, are far from safe and are the main condition and risk factor for the development of such addictions. Consequently, we concluded that this problem cannot be solved at the level of an individual or a family and that a global transformation of public opinion on this issue is necessary. Our task as researchers is to provide the necessary evidence.
