What we're about

T.A.G. (tech & gaming) Addiction Support Group is a weekly in -person support group held in Calgary Canada for anyone struggling with compulsive Technology or Gaming Addiction (including: cel phone use, television, internet, console games, computer games, board games, video games, VR, etc.)T.A.G. also has a Facebook Page with meeting details. I.E: In CALGARY In Calgary we meet in-person two different nights per week @ 2 different locations. Tuesday nights from 7-8 @ Deer Park United Church In s. e. Calgary. Thursday nights from 7-8 @ Bethany Chapel in s. w. Calgary, (across from Mount Royal University) (main doors). Due to Covid-19 protective face masks are required. A brief yes or no covid questionnaire will need to be read by all attending before entering the meeting rooms. Plus any minors who attend must be accompanied by an adult. The adult must remain on premises in their cars until the meeting is over. (Please register your intent here if you plan to attend & refer to this "T.A.G. Support" page regularly for any changes or additional meeting locations for the province of Alberta.) In the city of EDMONTON meetings are temporarily on hold. In the meantime please attend live online 12 step support meetings for tech and gaming addiction at cgaa.info, olganon.org (or T.I.G.A.R via Zoom Saturday afternoons @ 4pm EST), gamequitters.com or Internet technology addicts anonymous. Two of these groups can also be found on the “WhatsApp” app where ongoing interaction, support & free sponsor connections are made online. Recently, the World Health Organization (W.H.O) included Gaming Addiction in its classification of "diseases."

Signs of Tech/Gaming Addiction include: impaired control over tech use/gaming, increasing priority given to tech use/gaming over other activities to the extent that it takes precedence over family/friend in-person contact, commitments, daily activities, sleeping and personal hygiene.

The continuation or escalation of tech use/gaming "INCREASES" despite the occurrence of negative consequences.

Come out to a weekly in-person T.A.G. meeting in Calgary (soon to include Edmonton Alberta) to receive the personal support of others who can relate and empathize with your day to day struggles/victories with this "process" addiction.

In between weekly T.A.G. Support meetings - please attend free online LIVE 12 Step Support meetings via cgaa.info or olganon.org or internetaddictsanonymous.org or T.I.G.A.R. Also see gamequitters.com. Some of these online sites offer "LIVE" online 12 step support meetings for those struggling with tech & gaming addiction - PLUS separate live online support meetings for the “PARENTS” of gamers. Each of the above mentioned websites also offers many encouraging personal recovery stories with helpful resources. Plus, "Restart Life" is a 12 year old live-in or live-out tech/gaming rehab facility located in Seattle Washington which also has many helpful resources on its website. Gamequitters.com and T.I.G.A.R are Canadian based sites and are also excellent - GameQuitters has over 250 short video tutorials covering every topic from anxiety to how to get out of the house to 101 things to do instead of gaming.

Please note that "T.A.G. Support" has no association with any of these groups but we do share the commonality of assisting those with a "desire" to QUIT.

Although online support can be helpful, "PERSONAL" face to face support is needed. This can be achieved via face to face T.A.G. Support Group meetings! The first step is the hardest, which is attending a meeting. Please know that you will feel welcomed and included, as we walk this journey of wellness out together. "You are "NOT" alone!" 😀
