Internet Addiction Treatment Center (IATC)

Virtual addictions include behavioural addictions such as the internet, technology, computer, games of chance. Excessive use of the internet and computer creates a narcotic effect in brain which is similar to substance addiction. The brain chemicals of people, who tries to stay 24 hours in front of a computer and who eats and fulfill his/her other needs at a computer desk, starts to deteriorate as in substance abusers. In order for brain to get back to its previous state; patients whose situation is progressed is nw treated as inpatients. Conducted research show that the damage of the internet and cocaine is pretty much the same.

Staying in front of a computer screen for a long time distorts the award-punsihment mechanism related with feeling of pleasure and while at first people can enjoy the internet for just an hour, eventually the you spend on the internet to experince the same enjoyment is gradually increasing. This time may rise up to 25 hours. Consequently, the individual exhibits behaviours similar to substance abusers and starts to live a completely virtual life.

Addicted individuals present depressive behaviours and go through a crisis when they are kept away from their computers. Eventually, they became ill-tempered and hit and smash objects. In inpatient treatment, the patient is isolated for 15 days. If the patient experience abnormal states of crisis in this duration, which is also observed in substance abusers, this reaction of the brain is prevented through medication.
