“Web Rehab” combines the latest research about how brains change, with the evidence-based behavioral therapy techniques of Exposure & Response Prevention (ERP), and Freeman’s own experiences applying those techniques.
Freeman recovered from a decade-long struggle with Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) and addiction through ERP. The step-by-step process in “Web Rehab” is designed to give readers the same tools to overcome their compulsive online behaviors and urges.
Internet addiction is still a controversial diagnosis but, as Freeman points out, “Illness shouldn’t be a prerequisite for health. Don’t wait until the Internet is severely interfering with work or school or your relationships. If you feel like you need to be online or you need to check things constantly, then that’s going to get in the way of being productive and achieving your goals, and that’s something we can fix.”
Freeman points out in “Web Rehab”, that it’s not what somebody is doing online, but how they’re doing it that becomes problematic. Compulsively checking and rereading email can be just as unhealthy as compulsively playing video games or visiting adult websites. Everybody can benefit from developing healthy Internet skills.
“Web Rehab: How to give up your Internet addiction without giving up the Internet” is available exclusively on Amazon for free from January 1st to January 5th, 2012, and then it returns to its regular price of $2.99.
