Progressive Therapeutic Care for Behavioral Addictions

Feel better. Live better.


Innovative. Pioneering. Trendsetting care.

We believe environment  and people matter

What surrounds you is just as important as what’s inside you. For far too long, mental health care has been delivered in dingy office buildings, with dated waiting rooms, and a clear separation between you and the professional you’re seeing. It’s time for a drastic change in the way people receive care.

The reSTART experience starts with a warm, bright, and inviting space where you’re part of our community.


Meet others seeking sustainable screen use.

It’s not easy to be progressive. In fact, it’s quite difficult. Likewise, changing your pattern of use is challenging and requires strength to go up against the status quo. But you don’t have to do it alone.

See yourself in a whole new way.

Music has a way of touching the soul, and expressing the messages we feel deeply. Given voice, thoughts, like music changes our perspective. And ultimately our lives.

Connect with purpose.

Humans are meaning making people. We seek to matter and we’d like to be heard. Therapy, coaching and counseling provides the needed guidance to pursue your purpose.

Find a sense of balance.

With digital distractions on the rise, the need for a life in balance is more important than ever before. At reSTART, we work together to foster greater opportunities by examining all the factors leading to excessive or problematic use.

Connect to a whole new world

With treatment that creates lasting change

We may be the experts, but recovery starts with you

Step inside our Bellevue campus and you’ll see why reSTART was nominated as one of the world’s 50 most innovative companies in 2017. Simply put, we’re just different. 

At reSTART, we put you in charge of your own mental health. Our entire center is designed to inspire health and healing. When you visit your therapist, YOU choose which room you’d like to meet in, not the other way around. While the providers you meet with are clinically skilled and specialized, we fundamentally believe you possess what it takes to live the life you desire. Our primary role is to accompany you in your quest for a healthier, happier life. 

Connect with people who care.
