Quote:
Internet addiction is not recognized as a separate disorder by the American Psychiatric Association, and treatment is not generally covered by insurance. But there are many such treatment centers in China, South Korea and Taiwan - where Internet addiction is taken very seriously - and many psychiatric experts say it is clear that Internet addiction is real and harmful.

I saw that article about the "internet addiction center" in the paper a couple of days ago. Wait and see: this is going to become the next great excuse, just the latest one in a long series of accountability and responsiblity-avoidance techniques.
