Man in Rehab To Treat His Netflix Addiciton

October 11, 2018

An unemployed man is being treated for an addiction to Netflix at a 'digital rehab' clinic in India in a first of its kind case. Doctors say the 26-year old couch potato began streaming films and TV shows to shut out reality by binge-watching shows for more than seven hours a day. The severe addiction led to eye strains, exhaustion and an erratic sleeping pattern that wreaked havoc on the man's health. Thankfully the man is in a rehabilitation program that helps people beat their drug and alcohol problems, as well as addictions to technology, including gaming and social media. Doctors are using meditation and careers advice as well as traditional therapy to treat the man. Figures suggest the average Netflix subscriber streamed 50 minutes of programs a day last year.
