Assurant Health Rehab and Internet Addiction Coverage

What is Internet Addiction?

In 1995, less than 1 percent of the world's population had internet access. Today, that number has jumped to 40 percent, or just under 3 billion people. It's no surprise then that with all this access there are some technophiles whose affinity for all things World Wide Web has begun to morph into something significantly darker. Internet addiction is far more serious than just a need to check your email a little more often than might be polite; true internet addicts suffer from a range of debilitating behaviors and symptoms that all too often interfere with relationships, work, and school. While internet addiction is a relatively new diagnosis, a University of Kentucky study referenced in a 2013 Daily Mail article said researchers estimate that between 0.3-38 percent of internet users are actually addicted to surfing the web.

Symptoms indicating a possible internet addiction include:

  • Mood swings
  • Preoccupation with using the internet
  • Inability to lessen or cease Internet usage
  • Need to play more often or play new games to achieve same level of pleasure and satisfaction
  • Withdrawal from regular social interaction in favor of time on the Internet
  • Internet usage is affecting off-line life

Seeking Treatment for Internet Addiction

If you're looking into your Assurant Health Internet addiction coverage, chances are you're ready to face your compulsive behaviors and take back control of your life. Though Internet addiction treatment may not involve illegal substances, there is evidence that Internet addicts feel withdrawal effects similar to those experienced by people addicted to drugs and alcohol. The first step is detox, where you'll work to limit or eliminate your exposure to the internet and therefore begin to curb your dependency. The rest of your rehab plan may incorporate counseling, group therapy sessions, cognitive retraining, and treatment for any coexisting disorders that may impact your future wellness.

Choosing a Facility

Depending on your particular insurance plan, your Assurant Health Internet addiction coverage may provide for 24/7 care in an inpatient facility or you may be better served – both financially and in terms of flexibility – by attending an outpatient facility, where you can come in for treatment as your personal and professional schedule allows. The Fix can help you check your benefits so you can take advantage of everything your Assurant Health Internet addiction coverage has to offer and being your road to recovery at the rehabilitation center best suited for your needs.
