Digital-Media Treatment & Education Center ~ Boulder, CO
Our team specializes in the intervention, treatment and aftercare of overuse and addictions in the areas of video games, pornography, specific Internet applications, mobile devices and screens in general.
We support the client to determine a plan to abstain from problematic applications and devices, develop a plan to reintegrate digital media and specific Internet applications, which will support academic, work, and social connection. We specialize in treating co-occurring issues often experienced with overuse and addiction to technology, such as depression, ADHD, Executive Functioning deficits, anxiety, academic problems, relationship issues, and substance abuse.
We offer individual and family therapy, and group support to teens and adults.
The center sponsors a weekly Internet-Technology Addiction Facilitated (IATF) support group for those seeking support to gain control over their technology use and connect with other who are struggling with similar issues. This group occurs on Mondays from 4:30-5:30. Please contact us for further details.
We collaborate with CU-Boulder Collegiate Recovery Center who facilitates a weekly ITAA (Internet Technology Addiction Anonymous) 12-step group on Thursdays from 6-7 pm in the CU-Boulder UMC. This group is open to those 16 and older.
Parents are welcome to attend both groups with their child.
Parent Support groups are going to begin in the spring of 2016. Please contact us for more information.
Presentations and Workshops
We provide presentations and workshops to college campuses, schools, clinicians, and private groups, as well as present at conferences around the country. Please contact us for availability.
Tracy Markle and her colleagues provide specialized presentations and workshops based on the group’s needs. They have presented to medical and dentistry groups, private and public schools, colleges, as well as at therapeutic and academic conferences. The presentations and workshops focus on all ages groups and their particular problem areas and needs. For medical and mental health professionals our presentations and workshops provide examples of how Internet and video game addiction can be recognized in clinical practice. They present scientifically based and updated information about validated treatments and also explain how behavioral intervention and treatments are set up for children, teens, and young adults.
