Not Covered by Insurance YET!
…Stay with me on this one…the key word is YET.
Author Kerry Klecic posts a news story headlined “Internet addiction: A real problem in America?” The article concerns a 10-day program run by Dr. Kimberly Young as the nation’s first and only inpatient internet addiction center.
Apparently many young individuals see their lives spinning out of control with careers and relationships jeopardized by obsession with the internet.
- Diagnosis: Internet Addict
- Treatment: Digital Detox
- Cost: $14,000
- Favorite Sites: Online Dating, Gambling, Gaming, and Social Media
This would be nothing more than an interesting news tidbit until you read Dr. Young’s quote: “Insurance companies aren’t covering internet addiction treatment YET” [emphasis added].
Don’t let YET catch you by surprise. And yes, I know you read this on the Internet.
Call us. We can do better.
