Starting Internet addiction counseling

What is Internet addiction counseling?

The primary objective of this counseling is to assist you in regaining control over your internet use, establishing healthier online habits, and addressing any underlying emotional or psychological issues, ultimately fostering a more balanced relationship with the digital world and enhancing overall well-being.

Counseling in Marietta, GA for Internet Addiction

Most people can go online anywhere and anytime they want. Some people can regulate their Internet use without any problems while others struggle—they may have an addiction to the Internet. Addiction can look like substance abuse or a compulsive behavior. Gambling, for example, is a behavior that some people can engage in without compulsion while others develop a dependency upon it. Internet addiction works in much the same way. Like any other addiction, it is a mental health challenge that can cause harm within an individual’s personal or professional life. Also like any other addiction, compulsive Internet use has treatments.

The counselors at Thriveworks Marietta offer treatment for Internet addiction. It is a common issue that our clients face, and we have helped many regain balance in their lives. If you are struggling with internet addiction, please reach out to us. We are here to help and can get you scheduled right away.

Compulsive Internet Use

When an individual displays at least five of these symptoms, they may be using the Internet compulsively:

  1. An obsession with the Internet or being online.
  2. An inability to stop using the Internet or decrease use.
  3. Staying online for longer than one intended.
  4. Using the Internet even though it puts one’s personal or professional life at risk.
  5. Using the Internet as a mood-regulator.
  6. Spending more and more time online in order to feel satisfied with one’s use.
  7. When not using the Internet, feeling irritable, moody, or depressed.
  8. Lying about how much and/or when one uses the Internet.
