ReSTART is excited to announce the roll out of a brand new curriculum for their adolescent treatment and recovery program. This curriculum, created by ReSTART’s very own Dr. Sam, taps into the gamer’s thought process, captures their interest, and engages the students in the treatment process. ReSTART students will be attached to a fictional character and that character will be on their own journey or quest. The student’s struggles and progress mimics their character’s, allowing them to become motivated, engaged, and invested in their character's journey as well as their own. The curriculum involves groups focused on anxiety, depression, life skills, neurobiology, and addiction, just to name a few. The Director of Admissions, Johnny Tock, feels "this curriculum is unlike anything in the world. You are essentially turning your treatment into a Choose Your Own Adventure hero's journey. This curriculum has over 1000 pages of possibilities!"
ReSTART is the premier adolescent and young adult treatment program focused on internet and videogame addiction. ReSTART focuses on supporting this population of students struggling with tech addiction by addressing their tech addiction and also working through their underlying issues of anxiety and depression and improving their ability to connect with relationships and life.
This new curriculum is another example of how ReSTART continues to be at the forefront of treatment focused on internet and video game addiction, allowing their students' experiences to be unique and appealing. Through recognizing their specialized treatment population demands different treatment options and experiences than other addiction treatment models, reStart has been able to meet their students' specific needs and support them in the best way possible.
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.
