Games Addiction Rehab Opens In London, UK

The Metro newspaper has reported that a London based consultant psychiatrist has opened a recent rehab service for individuals who are addicted to modern forms of technology such as the internet, mobile phones (and the most relevant to you lot) games. He said about the program:
"Mental health services need to adapt quickly to the changing worlds young people inhabit and understand how seriously their lives can be impaired by unregulated time online, on-screen or in-game."
Sounds like he has the best intentions but what stern parenting cant resolve is anyone’s guess. I’d have thought that not letting your children get their way all the time would allow them to grow up as decent human beings and not some of the downright horrible people we have to encounter every day (in my opinion anyway).
