UK’s National Health Service is preparing to launch its first internet addiction clinic
“A London hospital is preparing to launch the first NHS-funded internet addiction centre for young people and adults” The Guardian revealed.
The centre ill initially focus on gaming disorder--a new diagnosis to be introduced in the forthcoming 11th edition of the International Classification of Diseases, the World Health Organization announced earlier this week.
However, the plan is to expand services in the future to cover other internet-based addictions--for instance, porn- or social media addiction.
