Adolescent internet addiction is becoming a serious problem in China. The aim of the present study was to examine the relationship between resilience and internet addiction. Three hundred and forty-eight vocational technical school students from Hebei province completed the self-reported questionnaire. Structural Equation Model was used to explore the effects of resilience, perceived class climate, and alienation on internet addiction. Result shows that resilience is negatively associated with internet addiction, and this relationship was partially mediated by perceived class climate and alienation.
