I'm a little late to this news, but it's too interesting to pass up. Capio Nightingale Hospital in London has launched a new program to treat technology addiction in teenagers (or, as they're calling them, "screenagers"):

Help will be offered through intensive in-patient, day care or group therapy to children as young as 12, although it is aimed at 15 to 17-year-olds, amid increasing concern about the amount of time they spend in front of a screen.
