Odyssey Behavioral Healthcare (Odyssey) recently announced the addition of the seventh primary clinical pathway to Lifeskills South Florida (Lifeskills) for video game and technology addiction. The new clinical pathway is through a merger with Greenfield Recovery Center. Expansion of the new clinical pathway is spearheaded in partnership with technology addiction pioneer and leading expert David Greenfield, Ph.D., who is transitioning the Greenfield Center program from Massachusetts to Lifeskills. The merger will also bring Lifeskills additional clinical expertise for co-occurring psychiatric conditions such as mood, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), or anxiety disorders.
Odyssey, headquartered in Brentwood, Tennessee, has a diverse network of services treating adults and adolescents for eating disorders, psychiatric, dual diagnosis, and addiction. Odyssey provides a continuum of care including inpatient, intensive residential, partial hospitalization, outpatient services, and transitional living through its operations in over 20 behavioral health locations and affiliated outpatient services in eight states with over 300 total beds.

Dr. Greenfield is one of the world’s leading voices on process and behavioral addictions, founder and medical director of the Center for Internet and Technology Addiction, and co-founder of the Greenfield Recovery Center. Additionally, he taught and supervised psychiatry residents at the University Connecticut School of Medicine, and is the author of Virtual Addiction, which rang an early warning bell about technology addiction.
