Social Media Addiction Treatment

Social Media Addiction Treatment

Similar to treating food addictions, it is often the case that the individuals receiving social media addiction treatment need to find a healthy work / lifestyle / play balance between their addiction and what actually needs to be achieved. What Holina strives to do is to introduce the concepts about quality of life being compromised in the name of immersion in artificial realities that don’t serve someone’s long-term future, goals or destiny.

Leaning heavily on NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) alongside the 12 Step program of personal development, at Holina we facilitate social media addiction treatment by introducing healthier ambitions alongside their realities. The Holistic therapies that we use alongside these coaching, counselling and therapeutic methods, allow the resident to tap into their emotional states during our social media addiction treatment and unleash their larger hopes and dreams or higher purpose, permitting them to find better balance all around.

What Is Social Media Addiction?

Social Media addiction is very much linked with Smart Phone addictions, where the individual is perpetually attached to their news feeds or is uploading and engaging in commentary and dialogue, usually with strangers, but also with a club or a group who share similar interests. This addiction may compromise the individual’s ability to differentiate between reality and the images, or the content or the context that they’re consuming, leading to an eschewed view of the world and their surroundings. This may also affect their self-esteem in both directions, as an inflated version of themselves, or as a diminished person, often leading to consequences such as depression or low self-esteem before they seek professional help and social media addiction treatment. 

What Is Gaming Addiction?

In the case of Gaming addiction, this would be best witnessed by someone’s inability to leave their game or virtual reality world for any periods of time without feeling drawn back, as if it was calling them. Furthermore, it could be complicated by the individual’s inability to engage in normal everyday tasks, such as basic hygiene and self-care, or attending work or school or even seeking employment. This form of addiction is likely to affect someone in many other areas of their lives too, including socializing and interacting with others, except in a virtual/online way.

What Is Social Media Addiction?

Technologies addiction can also be linked to workaholism or be considered a role someone needs to play to sustain their work, business, or lifestyle. Unfortunately, the compulsion to proactively engage in artificial technologies, however cool and modern, may begin the compromise the individual’s grasp of reality. This is science-fiction becoming real life now, as some people dedicate their life in a greater way to a technology previously undiscovered or unexplored, and we see a compulsive immersion process emerge in the persons.

What Are The Downsides Of These Types Of Addictions?

Engaging in Social Media, Technologies and Gaming once in a while is unlikely to be harmful. However, there are negative effects to consider when overusing social media and over time you might need to look for a reputable social media addiction treatment centre.

Some possible downsides of these addictions include:

  • Low self-esteem, which may be prompted by incorrect perceptions that others’ lives are “better” than yours
  • Increased isolation and loneliness
  • Anxiety or depression
  • Onset of social anxiety disorder
  • A fear of missing out (FOMO), which can lead to even more social media usage
  • Disrupted sleep patterns, especially if you use social media right before bedtime
  • Decreased physical activity, which may affect your overall health
  • Poor grades or work performance
  • Ignoring the relationships in your “real” life
  • Reduced ability to empathize with others
