"Restart" is a free self-help app aimed at people with gambling problems. The app is to be used in combination with the free self-help program "Neustart" ( neustart-spielhilfe.de
). The free portal helps people with gaming problems to better master problems that are directly or indirectly related to gambling
The self-help exercises used in the app are based on scientifically recognized techniques of cognitive behavior therapy (KVT) to reduce emotional problems such as depression and loneliness, but also to improve impulse control disorders that often cause and / or maintain gaming problems. You will receive a new exercise every day. The exercises take a few minutes and can be easily integrated into everyday life. A push message reminds you regularly (optional function). You also have the option of adding your own exercises or guidelines or modifying existing exercises. You can expand the app to your personal "guardian angel". However, the app does not automatically adapt to usage behavior (no learning algorithm is used).
Taking care of your own condition is a bit like brushing your teeth: you should do it every day, otherwise it doesn't do much. The app therefore tries to support you in carrying out the self-help exercises as regularly as possible, so that they pass over into the flesh and blood and change the state of mind. At best, reading and understanding gives a “wow” effect, but mostly does not lead to lasting changes. The best way to benefit from the app is to actively work with it and practice continuously! The exercises may sometimes repeat themselves, even if you add many of your own. This is deliberate because only regular repetitions can permanently overcome difficulties.

The self-help app cannot replace psychotherapy and is a pure self-help approach. The app is not an appropriate treatment for acute life crises and suicidality. In the event of an acute crisis, please contact the telephone counseling service (www.telefonseelsorge.de) on number: 0800 111 0 111, the German Depression Aid (www.deutsche- depressionshilfe.de) or dial 112.
