Omega Recovery is a leading social media addiction rehab with world-class amenities, evidence-based therapies, and the lowest relapse rates. We help individuals consumed by their need to engage on social networking sites with psychotherapies and holistic treatments. Here are some of the benefits of social media addiction rehab:
Not everything that you get on social media platforms is healthy. Young adults often feel influenced and pressured by unattainable body image and beauty trends posted on social networking websites like Instagram, Facebook, TikTok, and Snapchat. Our addiction treatment focuses on helping patients feel good about themselves and ignore these idealized and unrealistic beauty standards.
Addiction to social networking sites often stems from underlying mental health issues like depression, PTSD, feelings of loneliness or hopelessness, eating disorders, etc. Our addiction treatment focuses on identifying and addressing the root cause of addiction, thereby preventing the risk of relapse in the long haul.
Social media addiction treatment can help you break free from your excessive gadget use and screen time gradually and help you overcome your behavioral disorder in a healthy, safe, and sustainable manner.
Getting notifications or likes creates a dopamine rush and sends it across all the reward pathways. Continuous and immediate rewards in the form of more attention from others can be unhealthy for your brain in the long term and can affect its chemical makeup. With the brain rewiring itself through consistent positive reinforcement, social media addiction can lead to other mental health problems down the line.
In real life, people talk about themselves only 30 to 40% of the time. Social medial causes those numbers to spike to to 80%. This unhealthy pattern of showing off your life and accomplishments can release dopamine in your brain more often, affect your mood, and lead to anxiety or depression in the long haul. Social media addiction treatment can help you overcome your need for others’ approval.
Our Facebook addiction treatment can help you learn essential coping mechanisms and life skills to overcome stress, loneliness, and depression, seeking to counter the urge to visit social networking sites for self-validation. Individuals addicted to social media spend several hours using it for the continuous rewards it offers. However, persistent social media engagement can lead to multiple interpersonal problems, relationship troubles, issues at work or school, and deteriorating physical health. We help our clients develop a busy schedule and healthy routine, averting them from engaging in excessive social media usage. We also use psychotherapies to relieve dysphoric mood states and reduce the level of psychological dependency linked to social media.
