“Unfortunately, it seems that we, as a society, have entered into a Faustian deal. Yes, we have these amazing handheld marvels of the digital age – tablets and smartphones – miraculous glowing devices that connect people throughout the globe and can literally access the sum of all human knowledge in the palm of our hand. But what is the price of all this future tech? The psyche and soul of an entire generation. The sad truth is that for the oh-so-satisfying ease, comfort and titillation of these jewels of the modern age, we’ve unwittingly thrown an entire generation under the virtual bus.” -Dr. Kardaras
Addiction to technology is a relatively new phenomenon, but it is one of the fastest growing addictions that we have ever seen. Technology Addiction is an umbrella term that includes addictive behavior towards video gaming, social media, texting, gambling, cybersex and online porn, eBay and other online auctioning or shopping platforms, as well the general overuse of smartphones.
“The average person in the United States spends approximately 10 hours and 39 minutes on technology devices each day.”
At Omega Recovery, Dr. Kardaras’s unique program does indeed address all those underlying issues. Yes, there is a digital detox period, but during that digital detox, the real work of self-discovery—and long-term recovery—occur. We meaningfully engage our tech addicted clients and connect them to caring, well-trained masters-level therapists trained by Dr. Kardaras and certified by the NIDHW (National Institute for Digital Health and Wellness). Clients begin to do the underlying psychodynamic work so that they can build a stronger and more empowered sense of their own identity—without the counterfeit reality of their digital escapism.
What Type Programs for Technology Addiction Does Omega Offer?
Omega Recovery offers a variety of programs to help those struggling with technology addiction. We understand that everyone is different and may need a different approach when it comes to overcoming their addiction. Our program options include:
– Clinical Program: This program is designed to unplug participants from their devices and get them back to living in the real world. Participants are required to attend all group sessions, as well as individual therapy sessions.
– Outpatient Program: This program is for those who cannot take time off from work or school to participate in our clinical program. Participants are still required to attend all group sessions, but will have more flexibility when it comes to scheduling individual therapy sessions.
– Intensive Inpatient Program: This program is for those who need a more intensive approach to treatment. Participants will stay at our facility for the duration of their program and will be required to attend all group and individual therapy sessions.
– Aftercare Program: Our aftercare program is designed for those who have completed one of our other programs. Participants are required to attend monthly group sessions, as well as individual therapy sessions.
Omega Recovery offers a variety of programs that cater to each person’s unique needs when it comes to technology addiction. We understand that no two people are alike, so we offer a range of options for participants to choose from. Whether someone needs a more intense inpatient program or prefers outpatient care, Omega has something for everyone.
Treatment for Technology Addiction at Omega Recovery
In our Community Integrated Treatment Model, our Omega clients are engaged in living in the real world once again—and we make it fun as we help them to find their passion! Oftentimes, the tech devices are a substitute for a young person who feels bored, lost, depressed, adrift and lacking any real sense of purpose or direction. Omega Recovery, Austin’s leading tech addiction treatment facility, helps them to find that meaningful sense of passion, purpose and direction in their lives. By living cooperatively in a treatment house in a vibrant community in the thriving city of Austin, we use all the social, nature-based, cultural, educational and economic opportunities available in an amazing city like Austin.
The recovering tech client gets the full clinical impact of an inpatient program in a much more comfortable, non-institutional alternative to traditional inpatient treatment. Dr. Kardaras has found that this type of treatment setting has better recovery outcomes as it is a more authentic and organic living and therapeutic environment, which translates into a smoother transition post-treatment.
Towards the end of treatment, the client works with their therapist to slowly begin to reintegrate mindful tech usage back into their lives. We help create a “digital re-entry” plan so that our clients and their families have a clear road-map of the transition back to our highly technological world. The recovered tech client needs to know how to balance healthy tech usage back into their lives as they look to get back into school, get a job or pursue any other passion that they may have. We assist our clients in post-treatment transition planning that includes aftercare, case management, peer coaching, job placement, recovery housing and much more.
