Internet Addiction

If you or someone close to you is exhibiting signs of having an internet addiction, it can be difficult to come to terms with the fact that professional help may be required to reset priorities. Omega Recovery’s tech addiction program makes it easy to get help for a screen or technology addiction, and since treatment is available in an outpatient environment, you won’t have to turn your life upside down in order to get the help you need. Contact our helpline at 512-647-2685 to speak with our admissions team.

Q: Is an internet addiction something to worry about?

A: Technology addiction is the fastest growing addiction in the world today, so it’s definitely something to be concerned about. If you’re spending more time online and less time with the people you care about, it may be time to consider talking with someone about the problem.

Q: What does computer addiction treatment look like?

A: Omega Recovery’s 8-week treatment program treats the tech addiction and addresses underlying issues that may be contributing factors, such as mental health issues. It’s not enough to pull the plug- you’ll need professional treatment to deal with the compulsive behavior, as well.

Q: How does Omega Recovery effectively treat a tech addiction?

A: Our recovery experts use the latest protocols and evidence-based treatments:

  • Nature immersion
  • Peer recovery coaching
  • Cognitive & Dielectical Behavior Therapy
  • Outdoor behavior health
  • Narrative Therapy
  • Mindfulness
  • Yoga and Somatic techniques

Q: How do I know if I have an internet addiction?

A: A few tell-tale signs of a screen addiction include:

  • Screen time hampering daily tasks
  • Technology is your primary source of pleasure
  • Screen time is a source of contention in your home
  • Friends & family have mentioned that you might have a problem
  • You spend more time with virtual friends or engaged in accumulating likes than you do with real friends
  • Your work habits are suffering

Q: Can I overcome a tech addiction on my own?

A: Possibly. Try limiting your screen time and see how you respond to the imposed limitations. If you’re able to comfortably reduce time spent online, you may not need professional treatment. Contact Omega Recovery to speak with our staff about self-imposing guidelines to find the right balance.

Q: Isn’t spending time online just a sign of the times?

A: Unfortunately, that’s what technology manufacturers want their customers to think, but the fact of the matter is that too much screen time negatively affects every aspect of your life. You can read more about how damaging an internet addiction can be when you review the information on our website.

Q: How do I get started on a tech addiction program at Omega Recovery?

A: Reach out to our addiction team by calling 512-559-7837 to request more information about our program. The greatest benefit of going through our outpatient treatment is that you’ll regain your sense of balance and get your life back on track. A healthy use of the internet can be achieved through our program.

Evidence-based Modalities for Treatments

Building on the pioneering work of Dr. Nicholas Kardaras, Omega created cutting edge protocols combined with the best evidence-based modalities to meaningfully and effectively treat young people struggling with substance addiction, mental health and/or tech addiction issues.

Omega Recovery’s Chief Clinical Officer
Dr. Nicholas Kardaras, explains in his book “Glow Kids” how modern-day technology is equally if not more dopaminergic(addictive) than drugs and alcohol. Considered a leading expert in digital addiction, he has clinically worked with 1,000 individuals and written about the subject for Time, Scientific American, Psychology Today, Solan, and FOX News, and has appeared on Good Morning America, ABC’s 20/20, the CBS Evening News, CNN, FOX & Friends, NPR, and in Esquire, New York magazine, and Vanity Fair.

    Treatments we Offer

    Tech Addiction Treatment

    One of the most serious issues with Tech Addiction is the absence of online responsibility. Users are often hiding behind a screen and engage in behavior that they would never do in real life. Omega includes our clinical program as a way to unplug from our devices.

    Mental Health Treatment

    Omega Recovery works with clients to help them manage their mental health symptoms by providing group and individual therapy, psychiatric consultation and evaluation, community support, and information on how to better manage their illness.

    Substance Abuse Treatment

    There is a risk of abuse and addiction whenever someone uses drugs or alcohol. Everyone is at risk of developing a substance abuse disorder, regardless of how much they use. Omega Recovery’s extensive diagnostic evaluations are used to determine whether or not addiction recovery should be a necessary treatment plan.
