It is widely recognized that ReSTART is the program to attend for internet and video game addiction. For the past decade, reSTART has worked with emerging adults in early recovery, focused on helping those struggling with those specific issues. Just this past month they added Rise Up Ranch, a place focused on animals, connection and detox, in order to continue to grow and improve on the services they are able to provide this population. ReSTART is continuing to grow and meet this need.
ReSTART is opening its Bellevue Campus this month. The Bellevue Campus is a place for their students to come and engage, not only in therapy, but in a creative and experiential therapeutic experience. It has always been ReSTART’s mission to push the envelope and think outside the box. As the experts in the field of internet and video game addiction, it has become their responsibility to look at the client base and discover the best therapeutic approach. ReSTART feels that they have done that with the Bellevue Campus.
While attending ReSTART the students will engage in personal growth several times a week at the Bellevue Campus. Rather than having them sit in a chair in a therapist’s office, staff and students have worked hard to create an environment that helps facilitate change. Each room has a fun and creative theme to help break down walls and foster positive therapeutic movement. They can choose to do therapy in a room with Legos, the music studio, a room focused on plants and growth, the art studio, or even do group therapy around a table where the seats are swings. These are just a few options they have to help create that change and also make the process of personal growth fun!
ReSTART is excited to add this new addition to their already well -ecognized and respected list of services they provide the growing population of emerging adults struggling with screen addiction.
Headquartered in Fall City, Washington, reSTART is a leading advocate of healthy sustainable digital media use (internet, VR, and videogames) for people and the planet. reSTART offers staffed residential care for youth (13-17) and life sharing retreats for adults (ages 18-30), along with independent living support.
