Internet Addiction

Internet addiction is real.

It can have a dramatic effect on your personal and professional life. The Internet and the technology that goes along with it are powerful tools in our society. We depend on constant connection and easy access to the Internet every day, and in some cases this connectivity has shaped how we live our lives. However, there comes a point when this kind of dependency can turn from something helpful into something harmful. When gaming, social media or Internet use through computers, notebooks or smartphones become consuming, the potential for addictive behavior can be very real. Sadly, everyday jobs are lost, relationships are shattered and financial problems explode from Internet addiction.

At The Center • A Place of HOPE, we understand the compulsive pull of Internet and gaming activities, and we can help you bring balance and happiness back to your life. We’ll work closely with you and your family to help unbind you from the addiction to the Internet and other forms of electronic media, teaching you how to have a healthy relationship with computers and smartphones, and restoring balance to your life.

If you believe you might be spending too much time on the Internet or your smartphone, ask yourself these questions:

  • Have I ever looked at the clock, only to realize I’ve been lost in time, playing video games for hours and hours?
  • Am I mindlessly surfing for long periods of time, addicted to my Facebook or Twitter accounts?
  • Have I ever given excuses or been less than truthful to get out of activities with family or friends so I could stay online?
  • Have I ever retreated to gaming or online activities as a way to escape from uncomfortable feelings?
  • Have I ever promised myself I’d cut down my online/gaming time, only to find that promise just made me want more?
  • When offline, do I think about when I was online or when I’ll be able to get online again?
  • If I can’t go online when I want, do I get irritated or anxious?
  • Have family members or friends expressed concern over how much time I’m gaming or online?
  • Does reading these questions and thinking about the answers make me feel uncomfortable about myself or someone I love?

“I went to The Center to learn how to deal with depression, anxiety, internet addiction and chemical dependency. I felt my team was very supportive, and truly cared about me and my recovery. The team was very in tune with my concerns and helped guide in building coping skills and the tools to be productive in my daily life. All group work was very beneficial for me, especially in my anxiety treatment. Overall I was extremely satisfied with the services I received at The Center. Thank you all for everything, you have contributed a great deal in saving my life and i will be forever grateful.”

Whole-person care at The Center • A Place of HOPE

Whole-person care was created by Dr. Gregory Jantz, PhD, the founder of The Center • A Place of HOPE, in the early 1980’s. Dr. Jantz noticed that other programs were treating just the symptoms of an individual’s disorder or addiction. This type of narrowly focused treatment was not providing the type of long-lasting care – complete recovery and freedom from one’s disorder – needed to define true success.

Treatment for the entire you — your mind, body and spirit 

Whole-person care treats your entire person, all aspects of your life – physical, mental, emotional, nutritional, fitness, spiritual – to enable complete healing for your mind, body and spirit. In this way, you work through all components of your life that have contributed to your current condition. The result is a deeper, longer-lasting and more complete recovery.

Your very own team of world-class professionals assigned just to you

At The Center • A Place of HOPE,  we assign a team of world-class, licensed and board-certified professionals just to you. Team members are highly specialized and include licensed medical doctors, psychiatrists, eating disorder specialists, psychologists, nutritionists, dieticians, mental health counselors, chemical dependency counselors, fitness trainers, registered nurses and marriage and family counselors,and clergy. They take the time to get to know you personally and understand all of your life events that have contributed to your current situation.

They then create a treatment program that is uniquely tailored to you, personalized to your individual needs and life experiences, and built to return you to a place of lasting balance, health and happiness.


When you arrive at The Center • A Place of HOPE, you are met by a caring member of your team and introduced to your modern condominium-style apartment, complete with a new kitchen, a large living room, and comfortable, warm bedrooms. Most condominiums have decks and patios. Your lodging, including housekeeping, laundry and linen services, is included at no additional cost.



Treatment Costs

Each treatment program is different, and the length and level of care required in each program varies. But each person discusses the cost of their program with a trained program specialist prior to arrival to fully understand what costs are involved. Costs are on a per-diem basis and include professional transportation to and from the Seattle airport, all lodging in modern luxury condominium-style apartments, morning and afternoon meals, and all treatment programs including all medical and psychological evaluations.

Most major insurance policies are accepted for treatment. For any out-of-pocket expenses, The Center • A Place of HOPE works with trusted financing firms to offer payment plans.
