Core Tip This study investigated the characteristics of Internet use and problematic Internet use (PIU), in drug addicts through a specific questionnaire. The findings indicated that PIU is more common in subjects taking cocaine and cannabis rather than opioids or alcohol, who were also affected by pathological gambling. This suggests a favouring role of stimulant drugs towards behavioural addictions. The relationship between time spent online and body mass index indicates that Internet use might be one of the factors promoting weight gain and obesity. Prevention of addictions should take into consideration PIU that nowadays represents a worldwide epidemic.
