Vietnam's first gaming rehab course has been hailed as a success, with 80% of class members giving up their gaming addiction. The course launched in late November, last year, and took on 40 youngsters aged 13-18.
Emerging from the 8-week program, one client claimed they had gone from playing games all day to using the internet for only an hour a week.
Before attending the course, held by the Southern Teenage Centre, he would skip school in order to play games at internet cafés. Now he has more time for his school friends and family.
