Psychedelic Therapy for Smartphone and Screen Addiction

Smartphone and Screen Addiction

Smartphones and computation technology have completely revolutionized our world, connecting most of the world population to one another, making communication and world events happen at the speed of light. But it has also revolutionized our pain and exploited hacks of the human system. Our attention has become one of the most valuable commodities, and Big Tech invests billions of dollars into seeking out and channeling that attention, for good and ill.

What’s more, while most parents would never dream of giving their children cigarettes or alcohol, it is not uncommon to see a young child glued to a screen. Screen and smartphone addiction starts early and replaces the boundless creative imagination of the child with the concrete infinity of the internet. 

Screens are so ubiquitous in our society. They are an ever-present source of distraction. When tactfully used, they are great tools for organizing and implementing our vision. When used unconsciously, they take us over and drive us into repetitive loops of consumption and depletion.

How Psychedelic Therapy Can Help

The constant influx of content and information from smartphones depletes our capacity for presence. They keep us from fully connecting to others, our purpose, and ourselves. When we reignite the incredible capacity for creation within, the draw that smartphones and screens have on us is greatly diminished. Psychedelic-assisted therapy, particularly MDMA and psilocybin-assisted therapy, are great interventions for this deficit of meaning and connection. With a safe and supportive container guided by our skilled clinicians, psychedelic therapy can help to reestablish a sense of wonder and intimate connection with experience, revealing the truth of smartphone addiction and its impact on your precious life. 

While MDMA and psilocybin-assisted therapy are still undergoing FDA approval, Within recognizes the tremendous potential of these medicines backed by many phase 2 and phase 3 clinical trials. We are committed to the intentional and ethical use of these medicines once they become available, and are proud to offer safe ketamine-assisted therapy.
