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 Technologies 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

Holina Addiction Treatment Center FAQ's
If the substances you consume, or your behaviour or attitude is getting you into trouble or having a negative impact on your life, The River Rehab may be an important option for you to consider. Not only will we provide you with the tools that you need, but we will also give you access to customized levels of treatment that will enable you to literally reinvent your life.
We treat the disease of addiction, which incorporates all substance dependencies, including alcohol, cocaine, crack, crystal meth, ketamine, heroin, methadone, Subutex, morphine, benzodiazepines, barbiturates, psychedelics, ecstasy, solvents, and legal (prescribed) medication addictions, as well as other process and behavior addictions such as sex, love, gaming, gambling, internet or technologies, shopping, food, exercise and co-dependency. We believe that addiction is a disease of the mind, from which we can recover, one day at a time.
We are a residential rehab experience, with a minimum of one month commitment. People are not permitted to come by and visit or look around unless an appointment has been made. This is to protect the privacy and the space for our residents and to keep them safe. We are not a day care facility or outpatient service. We only serve those people looking for a fully immersive experience.
Our minimum commitment is 4 weeks. Even considering that it’s possible to overcome an addiction with any long-lasting effect for any shorter period is simply unrealistic, and likely unethical. Whilst our minimum commitment is 4 weeks, many, probably most of our residents stay 6 to 8 weeks and some up to 12 weeks (the full program length).
We will discourage this until after week 9. Whilst it may be nice to think that your family are supportive and want to encourage you, it’s a huge distraction from treatment for the individual, and our collective observations (in other facilities) are that in over 66% of these visits it leads to disruption, early self-discharge, and often relapse. That said, please know we’re a treatment centre driven by your success and we do know that your success is significantly improved when family members are engaged in their loved one’s recovery. So if you would like to organise either a zoom call with your family and your primary therapist, or an actual family visit on site, we would encourage this towards the end of your treatment experience.
We appreciate that you will be away from your loved ones for fairly long periods of time, and that connection to them is important. Sometimes work or business calls are important to you. We will always find ways to help you facilitate these relationships.
We have decided that in today’s modern age of technology, it is important that you recover with your smart devices, and not in spite of them. So it is our policy that you keep all your digital devices unless a Digital detox is specifically part of your treatment or your addiction is related to the internet or gaming, or other smart devices.
This policy is reviewed on a case-by-case basis if a resident spends too much of their attention on their device rather than the other residents. We are also mindful of people with a sex addiction who may be navigating the internet to act out. Meanwhile, We have super-fast internet across the resort, and all the bedrooms have Smart TVs running YouTube and Netflix etc.
Yes you may. Whilst we’d love to encourage you to quit whilst youre with us, we acknowledge that many people still smoke So you may smoke on the balcony of your room, or in the dedicated smoking sala in the lounge area.
Koh Phangan is a warm climate all year round. It is typically in the low to mid 30s*c / low 90s*f during the day, and at night it rarely goes under 23*c / mid 70s*f Sometimes it rains, usually for up to 30 minutes, which serves at cooling down the air. Occasionally it may rain for longer periods (typically in October or November), though this doesn’t interfere with treatment particularly.
Pack as if you were coming on holiday to a tropical paradise island in Thailand – which, of course you are. Summer style clothing is recommended (light shirts, T-shirts, shorts, comfortable shoes, sneakers, flip flops / sandals, etc, light, breathable clothing and swimwear for the pool and the beaches. Most of us wear underwear, shorts, T-shirts / Tank Tops / Vests, sneakers, sandals & tongs / flip flops. Active wear for workouts and other fitness activities including swimming, sports shoes, and light wear for yoga. We do physical activities almost every day, so bring a few pairs to allow for laundry times.
There is no need to dress formal or smart. Everything is relaxed, comfort focused and easy going. We have a safe to keep your valuables in, but expensive jewellery and other luxury items are unnecessary. Toiletries: Please bring your own toiletries and hygiene products, such as toothbrushes, toothpaste, shower gel, shampoo, conditioner, shaving materials, basic makeup, hairbrush, etc. Anything you forget we can purchase from local shops.
Medications: You are allowed to continue using your doctor-prescribed medications while in rehab, but please do bring proof of your prescription. Please keep all your pills in the original packaging so that they are not to be unauthorized narcotics.
Kindly do not bring the following: Alcohol or drugs: It might seem self-explanatory, but some clients may try to sneak in a last-minute hit, fix, pill, can, bottle, etc. Your bags and belongings will be searched when you arrive at Holina. Alcohol or drug paraphernalia: This includes anything that advertises or glorifies the use of alcohol or drugs. This should also include items that display support for criminal acts including terrorism, sex, gambling, or other negatively perceived notions that could upset other residents.
Weapons: There is absolutely no need to bring any knives or weapons with you to Thailand or to treatment. They will be confiscated and destroyed. Toiletries that contain alcohol: Leave any alcohol-based products at home, such as certain mouthwashes, nail polish remover, perfumes, and aerosols.
We have 2 main Chef’s (supported by 2 other Thai chefs) – a Meat focused one and a Vegan Chef. You can advise us of any of your specific dietary needs and we can manage them. We’re used to having people with all types of needs. Nothing unusual there.
Our prices are all inclusive and dependent upon the style of room you choose – shared, single occupancy or private plunge pool villa. You can view our prices here
We don’t have any hidden costs, though there are some costs that should be aware of. We pay for any psychiatric assessments and other mental health professional visits. We ask you to pay for anything non detox or mental health related, including your medications.
We also ask that you have travel or medical insurance in place before you come to us. This is really for any non-detox or psychiatric related problems, like if you fall over and break your arm, or some other uncalculated trip to accident and emergency.
We don’t pay for your flights to and from Koh Samui Airport (USM), but we do cover the cost of getting you from the airport to Holina and we will pay for your return to the airport unless you check out against clinical advice. Typically, our clients spend between US$50 and $75 per month on personal items, such as snacks, sodas, cigarettes, some toiletries, etc, but it’s not necessary to spend any more. Even gift buying on this island is relatively cheap compared to the rest of the world.
At this time, residents of most countries around the world are able to come into Thailand and achieve a visa upon entry. We will advise you on this process. It’s very straight forwards.
If you extend your treatment and need a longer visa then we will take care of this for you, and in most instances we will pay for all your visa extensions too.
Currently, there are no requirements for any vaccines to come into Thailand. This includes COVID vaccines or any other historical vaccines previously required. So please don’t worry about this, unless you specifically want to be extra vaccinated.
