Center for Online Addiction

Founded in 1995, the Center for Internet Addiction Recovery has been devoted to helping those who suffer from Internet addiction. The Internet has impacted the world and provided many benefits to its users. At the same time the Internet has had negative ramifications. Some people are preoccupied with using the Internet, are unable to control their use, and are jeopardizing employment and relationships. The concept of "Internet addiction" has been proposed as an explanation for this uncontrollable, damaging use of this technology. Symptoms are compared to the criteria used to diagnose other addictions and research has characterized Internet addiction as an impulse control disorder most comparable to pathological gambling because of overlapping criteria.

Dr. Kimberly Young is a psychologist and an internationally known expert on Internet addiction and online behavior. Founded in 1995, she serves as the director of the Center for Internet Addiction Recovery and travels nationally conducting seminars on the impact of the Internet. She is the author of Caught in the Net, the first book to address Internet addiction, translated in six languages, Tangled in the Web, and her most recent, Breaking Free of the Web: Catholics and Internet addiction. She is a professor at St. Bonaventure University and has published over 40 articles on the impact of online abuse. Her work has been featured in media outlets such as The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The London Times, USA Today, Newsweek, Time, CNN, CBS News, Fox News, Good Morning America, and ABC’s World News Tonight. In 2001 and 2004, she received the Psychology in the Media Award from the Pennsylvania Psychological Association and she received the Alumni Ambassador Award for Outstanding Achievement from Indiana University at Pennsylvania. She is also an expert on Addicted.com.
