“In the News” – Reuters features Lindner Center “Reboot” Internet Addictions Program

 

Reuters featured the success story of a teenager who found help with Internet and gaming addiction through a new treatment program at the Lindner Center of HOPE. The story explains why more medical professionals are taking Internet addiction seriously and how the Lindner Center has pioneered a program to meet this modern condition.

A 2012 study estimates that between 1.5 percent and 8.2 percent of people in the U.S. and Europe experience “problematic computer use.” In 2018, The World Health Organization even classified video game addiction as a mental health disorder.

To combat Internet and gaming addiction, and provide a resource for families who need help, Lindner Center of HOPE has introduced a new program, called “Reboot.”

“This program helps those struggling with a loss of control to re-center their lives to avoid additional complications,” said Dr. Chris J. Tuell, Lindner Center of HOPE Clinical Director of Addiction Services.
