A Pennsylvania hospital is likening Internet use to that of cigarettes, alcohol or gambling and it's offering a program to help kick the net habit.
Bradford Regional Medical Center in Pennsylvania is offering a voluntary, 10-day program starting next week to take enrollees off the world wide web.
A doctor with the program said that Internet addiction is more pervasive than alcoholism, saying it's free, legal and fat-free.
The clinic and its doctors will treat several adult inpatients at a time with group therapy and learning how to minimally use the net.
Before setting foot into the program, each potential patient will be evaluated after a digital detox, or 72 hours disconnected.
The therapy comes at a hefty price, $14,000. There's no word if the bill can be paid online? And parents, don't think about sending your kids to the clinic. It's for adults only.
