ITAA in Houston, TX

Velkommen til Anonyme Internet- og Teknologiafhængige! Vi er glade for, at du har fundet os, og vi håber, at vores fællesskab kan være lige så nyttigt for dig, som det har været for os. ITAA er et tolv-trins fællesskab af individer, som støtter hinanden i at komme sig fra internet- og teknologi-afhængighed. Det omfatter afhængighed af sociale medier, smartphones, streaming af video- eller lydindhold, spil, nyheder, pornografi, dating-apps, online research, online shopping eller enhver anden digital aktivitet, der bliver tvangspræget og problematisk. 

Meetings in Houston

When: Sundays at 2:30
Where: The Whole Foods at 701 Waugh in central Houston.
Contact: Alice G at 817-823-0708 or; Patrick G at 727-422-0303 or
Additional information: Many of the more traditional homes for 12 step meetings had not reopened on weekends at the point we started meeting, hence the unusual location. We are past the cash registers in the eating area through the double glass doors. If you look at the building when coming in, it is the part of the building to the far right. One of the doors is usually unlocked so you can get in without going through the store.  We welcome members of Media Addicts Anonymous and Gaming Addicts Anonymous and change meeting formats week to week to rotate focus on issues.

We have a small but dedicated group who sometimes come late, and usually forget to put up a sign saying we are ITAA. On nice days we sit outside and otherwise try to sit in one of the corners indoors. If you can’t find us call or text Alice G at 817-823-0708 or Patrick G at 727-422-0303. One or usually both of them will be there. As of Jan 2023, the only day we haven’t met was Christmas. 

Additional meetings

If you’re new, we encourage you to try attending six meetings in a short period of time to see if our program may be helpful to you. In addition to our local in-person meeting, you can also review our other in-person meetings and a complete schedule of online meetings. Alle møder er helt gratis og anonyme.

Hvordan fungerer møder?

If you will be joining a meeting for the first time, there’s no need to be nervous. Most of our meetings are very simple; each meeting has a chairperson who leads the meeting, and most meetings are one hour long. The chair and other volunteers read some opening statements, before we open the meeting for members to share. There is no requirement to share, and it’s okay to just listen. You can share how you are doing, introduce yourself and what brought you to ITAA, or ask questions. Unless requested by the member sharing, we do not offer suggestions or comments in response to other’s shares; we simply listen non-judgmentally. At the end of the hour, the meeting will end with some closing statements, after which members usually talk casually, ask questions, and exchange contact details.
