The Vietnam News Service reports that the nation’s first clinic for addicted gamers has been opened in Ho Chi Minh City.
All 50 current "patients" at the facility are 13-18 years old. The rehab program lasts eight weeks. From the VNS article:
Though the first game only appeared in Viet Nam four years ago, there are six million people playing them, mostly aged 13 – 18.
Huynh Hong Hiep head of training at the Southern Youth Centre – a centre for sport and culture that has set up the rehabilitation facility – says many parents complain they are unable to drag their children away from the computer.
The "treatment" works by developing their personalities through involvement in social work and other activities like music, painting, dancing, and sports, he says.
