Technology Addiction

Another area of expertise is our Technology Addiction programs.  This is an emerging problem area for both Adults and Teenagers. And one that’s not very well-studied to date, so it’s best to talk to a health care provider that is well versed in treatment options. A person’s mental health history; what kind(s) of technology they’re addicted to; and personality can all play roles in deciding on the best approach.  Areas include GAMING, Cellphone, Internet and Social Media.

Areas of Concern include:

  • Internet
  • Gaming
  • Online Gambling
  • Social Media
  • Personal Device Addictions

These Intensives utilize cutting-edge treatment protocols developed by Dr. Greenfield and are designed to streamline and accelerate the recovery process so that you can return to a healthy life balance.

During the Technology Addiction assessment and treatment, Cornerstone Counseling will:

  • Assess/diagnose use and specifically review technology use patterns.
  • Establish an overall analysis of technical behavior.
  • Evaluate psychosocial, educational and medical history.
  • Understand established triggers found in the addictive pattern as well as other addictive or compulsive behavior, e.g. substances, alcohol, food, gambling, shopping, pornography, etc.
  • Develop an understanding of the neurobiology and psychoneurological patterns of addiction and how to create change in these deeper patterns of behavior.
  • Develop a relapse prevention plan.
  • Address underlying and co-occurring psychological and psychiatric issues that might be contributing to your addiction.
  • Address social and family relationships that have been impacted
  • Create a real-time life plan to overcome and thrive!
