REHAB FOR PHONE ADDICTION

A lot of us are “addicted” to our phones, but for some people, the addiction is so overwhelming they have to go to rehab. For real. There’s a recovery center in Tennessee called The Ranch that offers a special treatment program for people addicted to their phones. Experts compare phone obsession to compulsive shopping and other behavioral addictions.

And if you think this kind of addiction is rare, think again. A study out of Baylor University found that female college students spend an average of 10 hours a day on their phones, mainly checking social media and texting. And 60% of people surveyed admitted they felt addicted to their devices.
