Gaming addiction: Holistic rehab for young men


The Edge is a 90-day multi-pronged programme which combines traditional therapy (group and one-on-one), physical activity (muay thai, gym, triathlon training), wilderness therapy, cognitive behavioural therapy, a holistic approach (including art therapy and meditation), social responsibility, sober fun, family work and continuing care.

The Edge is an addiction ­programme for young men, aged 18 to 26, that not only tries to achieve recovery from a substance or process (like gambling and ­gaming) addiction, but also attempts to instil in addicts a new perspective and zest for life.

The programme was researched and designed by the clinical team at The Cabin Addiction Services Group, after discovering that its young male clients were not responding as well to the traditional “talk therapy” treatment model as their female counterparts or older clients.
