USA. Washington state. Fall City. ReStart Internet Addiction Recovery program at Heavensfield Retreat Center. Andrew (L) and Josh (R) train on indoor rowers during their Daily Workout sessions in Gym. Both are 20 years old and have dropped out of university because they were highly addictive online video gamers on internet. ReStart is an unique intensive onsite program which offers to participants an opportunity to stay in a retreat center designed to promote insight and renewal, disconnect from digital distractions, and engage in coaching and mentoring while building a blue print for change. The three to six-month reStart program, the first of this kind in the United States, works to help men over 18, suffering from problematic internet, video game, social media and technology use by teaching positive and sustainable lifestyle change in a serene, rural environment surrounded by nature. Modern indoor rowers are often known as ergometers (colloquially erg or ergo), an ergometer being a device which measures the amount of work performed. The national flag of the United States of America, often referred to as the American flag, consists of thirteen equal horizontal stripes of red (top and bottom) alternating with white, with a blue rectangle in the canton (referred to specifically as the "union") bearing fifty small, white, five-pointed stars arranged in nine offset horizontal rows of six stars (top and bottom) alternating with rows of five stars. The 50 stars on the flag represent the 50 states of the United States of America and the 13 stripes represent the thirteen British colonies that declared independence from the Kingdom of Great Britain and became the first states in the Union. 9.12.2014 © 2014 Didier Ruef
