Addictions and Compulsive Behaviors:
Internet and Technology Abuse and Addiction Tests

The Center for Internet and Technology Addiction (CITA) offers a wide range of treatment and services to assist in a variety of addictive, compulsive and impulsive behaviors. Counseling and intensive treatments are available for drug and alcohol abuse and addiction as well as behavior-based addictions and compulsions that include sex, food, work, computer or Internet use, gambling, exercise and shopping.

We offer a variety of treatment approaches and strategies that combine the best of traditional psychotherapeutic treatments, along with some newer alternative and complementary approaches that can assist you in changing addictive patterns and compulsions, reducing urges and cravings and returning your behavior to one of self-control and self-confidence.

The potential for addictive and compulsive behavior is inherent to the human condition. We all have times in which we find ourselves compulsively using or abusing behaviors or substances. Often, these behaviors come and go and we are able to achieve control through our own redirection and efforts. At times, however, it is necessary to seek the assistance of a healing professional as well as other community resources – like 12-Step support groups – to regain a sense of balance and control in our lives. Although we can never eliminate the potential for overusing, abusing or being addicted to certain substances or behaviors, we can minimize these circumstances and learn to recognize the underlying emotions and issues that move us in an automated way to these harmful patterns and behaviors.

CITA is proud to offer a variety of services which can help you help yourself. If you think you might have an Internet or technology addiction, we invite you to take the appropriate addiction tests from this page.
