Screen Addicted? Get help from leading experts

Worlds foremost Summer Camp Intensive Program for Teens 13-18. Proven Outcomes. Premiere video game addiction treatment for screen addicted adults since 2009. Depressed? Anxious? Internet Gaming Disorder, and excessive digital media use is now classified by the WHO as a problem. At reSTART, we've witnessed the countless ways tech use interferes with overall health and wellness. Some of the problems we see involve a decline in academic performance, unhealthy sleep habits, poor diet, impaired family and social relationships, and a decrease in motivation (other than to be online). Over time, excessive use acts in similar ways as does a drug like cocaine. Tolerance is built up, and an even greater amount of time is spent online to keep feeling good. Over the past decade, we've discovered that the problem is much deeper than screen use, or depression alone. These are actually the side effects. Often at the core of the issue is a desire for greater love, connection and belonging. Our program is built on the belief that lasting change requires a deep examination of what's underneath a person's excessive screen use.

Video gaming too much? You may need a reSTART

As America's premier provider of treatment for screen addictions, reSTART has helped hundreds of people get back to what matters most - life. reSTART offers a variety of treatment options to help users develop a sustainable relationship with digital technology. We offer an intensive 1-3 month retreat center treatment program, an independent living skills program, pre-care and aftercare programs, and individualized family wellness counseling and coaching services. In addition to problematic technology use, many of our clients also struggle with mental health challenges. Together we develop a plan to address these issues and help users find hope and healing whenever technology use has become a problem in their lives.

If you, or someone you know needs help. Reach out.

Screens. They're everywhere, and they are impacting individuals, families and communities. We've fielded thousands of calls from people all around the world concerned about the negative impact of excessive use. People often don't know how to respond or what to do when problems arise. It may even feel isolating. You may wonder why you, or someone close to you, is having problems while others don't. Or why your child is failing out in school or college, and others are doing just fine. Well, the fact is, screens are addictive just like substances, and alcohol. We just don't talk about it in those terms. But courageous people do. They start to notice differences, and changes in themselves and others. They start to notice that they are isolating more, and spending less time with others. And they reach out, and seek support. They make hard choices, spend money on treatment when they would rather spend it elsewhere, and they get their lives back. Yes, life can get better. At least, that's what the people who've sought our treatment tell us. That we offered hope when they didn't know where else to turn.
