Clinic for Interactive Media and Internet Disorders (CIMAID)

The Clinic for Interactive Media and Internet Disorders (CIMAID) is a clinic within the Adolescent/Young Adult Medicine clinic at Boston Children’s Hospital.

CIMAID is a multidisciplinary team led by Michael Rich, MD, MPH, Emily Pluhar, PhD, and Michael Tsappis, MD. We have been evaluating and treating increasing numbers of children, adolescents, and young adults in our clinic whose excessive online activities have caused problems with sleep, school, social functioning, and various aspects of physical and mental health. The CIMAID team can help you address and reduce the negative consequences of problematic interactive media use (PIMU), while helping the children, adolescents, and young adults in your life adopt and sustain healthy lifestyles and behaviors.
