All Kinds of News for May 06, 2020
During this unique time of social distancing, ReSTART has offered weekly webinars to help educate parents and professionals around issues of internet and video game addiction. Discussions range from “Introduction to Internet and Gaming Addiction”, “The Rise of the Female Gaming Addict”, “The Convergence of Gambling and Gaming Addiction”, and others; these webinars take place every Thursday at 10 AM PST.
ReSTART is the national leader in mental health treatment focused on internet and gaming addiction. They have been targeting this specific population and treating the anxiety, depression, ADHD, and other underlying issues that accompany internet and video game addiction for almost 11 years. As families are restricted to their homes, ReStart is planning to see a rise in tech addicted clients and students.
Being the first treatment program focused on tech addiction, ReSTART feels it is important, not only to treat the problem, but also to educate. It is important to be educated and knowledgeable about this topic as treatment programs and providers will see more and more clients struggling with their relationship with technology.
Invites to the webinars are found on ReSTART’s Facebook page, as well as their emailing list. If you would like to be added to this email list so that you can participate in future webinars, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
