Technology has its benefits, but if used too much it can create an addiction and harm our relationships and well-being.
Psychotherapist Doctor Joy Miller says technology can have the same control as a drug or alcohol addiction. She says what is supposed to help us communicate is actually hurting it and many people have become engulfed in a digital world.
"I think that many people are extremely numb to how hooked in they are to technology. In fact, many people think we're kind of in servitude to our technology," said Dr. Miller.
Doctor Joy says there are many benefits to cutting back, becoming aware of your usage and the hold technology can have on your life.
