ReSTART is the nation’s leader in targeting internet and video game addiction among adolescents and young adults. Through their years of experience and expertise, they have been able to support and help this growing population of young people struggling with this emerging issue. Located near the great city of Seattle, ReSTART has helped students from all over the country battle their addiction and develop a healthy relationship with technology.
This July, ReSTART is celebrating their ten year anniversary of being pioneers in the field of technology addiction. Ten years ago, Dr. Hilarie Cash and Cosette Rae met, connected on the growing need for this specific focus, and created ReSTART. Over the ten years, there has been much growth, including the adolescent program three years ago, and the more recent additions of a working ranch to the young adult program. It has been ten years of not only providing treatment for this growing population, but also ten years of educating the country on the reality of internet and technology addiction / internet gaming disorder.
As ReSTART celebrates their ten years of treatment, they are looking forward to the future. ReSTART is excited about the industry’s growing awareness and acceptance of the role this addiction is playing in the development of our adolescents and young adults. ReSTART remains the ultimate resource for information and guidance regarding how best to treat this issue and support the needed growth of care for the amazing young students of today.
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.
