It was bound to happen -- people are going to start checking into rehabilitation clinics to battle their internet addictions. A trial camp for youth and teens who are addicted to surfing is going on in China right now. Parents who are concerned about their young weboholics can send them to this withdrawal retreat.
It's only in the trial phase now, but it wouldn't be surprising if it's successful and spreads to other parts of the world. And I'm not just talking for kids. Adults are clocking countless hours online, whether it be for work or play, the internet has became a major part of people's daily lives.
China is on top of the potential threat the internet poses on it's country, as Trend Hunter has noted before:
