Most research bodies recommend a couple of hours of daily screen use. The problem with this logic is limited screen time is not a realistic solution when we need our phones for just about anything in life. We need the phone to order a cab, take out food, answer a work email, and watch the home’s security status. Home gadgets like fridges have a screen to entertain ourselves or watch the baby in the other room. So what is the realistic way of screen addiction treatment?
Types of computer addiction rehab treatments
There is massive evidence that nature has immense power over your healing potential. Nature therapy is not an emerging treatment approach but rather a new concept in new-age treatment centers. It is almost impossible to suggest nature as a healing tool without sounding a little detached from reality. People have lost touch with nature because we live our daily lives in forests of skyrocketing buildings and only visit nature once or twice a year on vacation.
Separating yourself from your phone to connect with nature is an evidence-based treatment that rings true for the monk at a mountaintop or the psychology professor. Studies show that outside activity is good for the body and has a massive reduction in cortisol. We can teach you how to balance your phone use by stimulating your love for nature. The tech addiction treatment program will enhance your creativity, help with mental clarity and provide other benefits that discourage constant phone use.
Peer support recovery is an effective way of sustaining recovery because you share the journey and life experiences positively. Screen addiction treatment improves relationships and reduces chances of relapse because you do not have to struggle with gaining inspiration and desire for long-term sobriety.
Our peer-coaching program offers helpful beliefs and emotional support to improve your overall quality of life. Most of the anxiety and depression you experience will disappear as you engage with loving, practical, and comfortable groups.
Behavioral and dialectical Internet addiction treatment
Addiction to cell phones is a mental problem, just like any other brain disease. You need a treatment approach that is just as volatile as the addiction to offer in-depth healing tools.
