At The Center for Internet and Technology Addiction (CITA), we address and treat mental health issues related to the usage of personal technologies.

Video gaming, social media and personal tech devices, as well as online access to pornography, can all cause disruption in our lives when not managed properly.

CITA is under the direction of Dr. David Greenfield, an internationally recognized authority and leading psychologist on the treatment of the emerging mental health issues related to personal technology usage.

Successfully treating patients since 1996, Dr. Greenfield was early on to recognize the dangers that our personal interactions with technology could promote. In his 1999 book, Virtual Addiction, he predicted the  increase in the rate of personal technology usage and the alarming rate of mental health issues that arise from such unmanaged access.

At CITA, we provide the most effective, current and individualized treatment in the highly specialized field of internet and technology addiction.

Dr. Greenfield offers private counseling sessions as well as a shortened out-patient treatment known as the CITA Intensive.
