As the nation’s only retreat center focused on technology dependency, ReSTART treatment uses the 12-step approach combined with life-skills mentoring and coaching, counseling support and clinical intervention to help people overcome dependency on digital media and their co-occurring mental health challenges. The reSTART Internet Addiction Recovery Program is designed to help launch tech dependent youth and adults back into real life interactions, starting with a 45-day period of abstinence that introduces participants to a variety of activities and life encounters that are often avoided or underdeveloped as a result of excessive gaming or internet use. Treatment then goes on to identify and address the core issues (family dysfunction, trauma, depression, anxiety, ADHD, etc.) that often drive digital addiction by connecting clients with integrative community service providers equipped to handle the underlying conditions.
