Rehab For Internet Addicts
To qualify for the treatment, you must have a problem with gaming, texting, and Internet use that includes symptoms like a strong impulse to use the Internet, withdrawal symptoms if you do not have access, a reduction in other interests or social activities as a result of your Internet use, and impairment in everyday life.
The program is called reSTART and costs about $14,500 for a 45-day treatment program, which I assume insurances will not cover since the debate about whether Internet addiction is actually a disease still rages on. At Heavensfield, patients will receive counseling, group therapy, vocational coaching, 12-step meetings, recreational activities (including outdoor adventures), fitness programs, and will be encouraged to do volunteer work - sounds wonderful - for every person!
Their Website includes a self-test for IAD, signs and symptoms, and a list of recommended books to read.
