Clinic for internet addicts opens in US reSTART offers counseling and psychotherapy – and up to 45 days 'cold turkey' away from the web Ed Pilkington       guardian.co.uk     , Friday 4 September 2009 16.10 BST  reprinted on www.cnn.com   retrieved Sept. 6, 2009 If you have to take a quick break from reading this article to check your Blackberry, send  a text or reboot your Xbox 360 before you reach the end of this paragraph, then the good  news is that help is at hand. reSTART has been opened outside Seattle, the rain-soaked north-western town where  high-tech companies are as common as cattle are in Texas. It claims to be America's first  residential detox centre for  internet  addicts. For a little over $14,000, up to six people at a time can spend 45 days sweating out their  insatiable urge to be umbilically connected to cyberspace. Think cold turkey as  experienced by heroin junkies, and you get the general idea.

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
