Institute for adolescents in Madrid and Barcelona

Desconect@ starts with the clear objective that young people learn to make appropriate use of new technologies. We are not looking to ban or make anything disappear, we simply want to optimize our resources in the best possible way.

Our program aims to make adolescents aware of the advantages, disadvantages and risks of new technologies . Through dynamic group activities and attending to their real concerns, we will work on new strategies for using mobile phones and social networks.

Disorders treated in the Desconect@ Program

At the Insituto Desconect@ the patient is not a number, he is one more member of our house and we take care of him through a high level of demand and a lot of love.

Addiction to new technologies

Addiction and/or abuse to mobile phones, social networks and video games: we work to make good use of a tool that is very useful when used well, but when abused it becomes highly dangerous.

Video game addiction

The World Health Organization (WHO) has included video game addiction as a mental disorder. This addiction causes an increase in the desire to play and a substitution of activities to be hooked on the screen.

Behavioral disorders

They manifest themselves with problems in self-control of behavior and emotions, violating the rights of others and can lead the adolescent to major conflicts against the norms of society or with authority figures.

Eating behavior disorder (ED)

Eating Behavior Disorder (ED) is a disease with serious consequences for the physical and psychological health of those who suffer from it and for their families. Anorexia, Bulimia and Binge Eating Disorder, generate obsession with weight, image and diet.

General Psychiatry Unit (UPG)

When we talk about problems typical of a General Psychiatry Unit (UPG), we are referring to a wide range of difficulties that range from emotional management problems and anxiety, to high-risk behaviors. In any case, we will be facing difficulties that do not allow the adolescent to carry out the activities of his daily life.

Substance addiction

A fundamental characteristic of substance dependence is the appearance of a series of behavioral, cognitive and physiological symptoms that indicate that the patient continues to consume the toxic substance despite the appearance of significant problems related to it.
