Internet addiction is a very real and grim disorder that the compassionate team at Trafalgar takes very seriously.
We understand the effect Internet addiction can have on impulse control, and that it correlates with, and can lead to, other behavioural addictions such as gambling addiction, despite the fact that neither of these addictions involves the use of substances. Users can develop an unrealistic emotional attachment to people they meet online and activities they create on their computers through games or websites, and despite the fact that this can be socially acceptable in regulated sessions, it is a very severe condition that can affect the lives of users and their families.
Our staff will work hard to determine the severity of your addiction and create the best treatment options available. Once Internet addiction reaches a point where it takes over your life, abstinence is the only effective solution. Luckily, there are treatment options similar to other forms of addiction for those whose Internet addiction takes on a life of its own. The tailored therapy techniques of Trafalgar will effectively put you on the path to recovery.
