Treatment for Technology Addiction
BlueFire PulsaR is a young adult therapeutic treatment program for young adults ages 18-28 that are struggling with mental health issues. Technology addictions are a growing challenge for young adults. Getting help for technology addiction is the first step toward finding balance. Our wilderness therapy program provides clients with the skills needed to overcome addiction and lead a happier, healthier life.
Technology addiction affects many people. Many of our clients are struggling with technology addictions such as:
- Video games
- Social media
- Internet overuse
How Do Technology Addictions Work?
Technology addictions can overtake a person’s life. Video games and social media give the brain quick doses of serotonin, making us feel good briefly. Over time, the pleasure center of the brain has to be re-trained to find serotonin in other activities. Mindfulness exercises, adventure therapy, and other outdoor activities can activate this “feel good” part in our brain. Activities that help us both mentally and physically provide our brains with serotonin and promote overall health.
