Internet Addiction TREATMENT?
Okay, so doctors have said that an addiction to the internet is A REAL thing. So, what’s the next step? Obviously, you can now seek treatment.
The treatment is currently only available in Pennsylvania at the Bradford Regional Medical Center. Once you’re there you’ll go through a 10 day “digital detox” to try to get to stop thinking about the internet so darn much.
The whole kit and caboodle costs about $14,000 which seems like that would equate to a life time of internet usage, right?
Most patients who will undergo the treatment will have to pay out of pocket because it’s not considered an issue that insurance will cover. However, the docs say that those who have a severe addiction probably suffer from some other disease or mental health issue that will allow them to get covered by insurance.
