Trails Momentum, an outdoor adventure-based therapy program for young adults, offers insight into today’s widespread technology addiction and overuse within the young adult population.
“Technology addiction and overuse can lead to negative social, behavioral, and physical effects in young adults,” says Dan Hadley, Primary Therapist at Trails Momentum. “There is no easy fix for tech addiction, but parents can take important preventative measures, and young adults struggling with a tech addiction can create ways to cope with technology in a healthier way. At Trails Momentum, we help young adults break out of negative patterns and work towards replacing technology use with hobbies and interests that have a positive impact on their lives.”
This past month, Hadley and Director of Student Development Sarah Parlier took part in a video series discussing technology addiction and social media overuse. In addition to technology addiction, the video series includes information about options for gap years and how to get help for a college dropout.
You can view the video series and more on the Trails Momentum video page.
