Thousands are believed to suffer in one form or another amid growing concern about young people's use of chat rooms and online gaming, and a series of treatment centres have sprung up. But today it emerged that some of the treatments on offer are as worrying as the condition, as the ministry of health moved to ban the use of electric shocks to cure chronic internet dependency. Doctors released the first diagnostic definition of internet addiction last year, based on a study of more than 1,300 intensive users. It says addicts are those who spend at least six hours online a day and have shown at least one from a range of symptoms including a yearning to get back online, fear of social contact and difficulty concentrating or sleeping. Other experts argue that the definition is far too general and many non-addicts qualify under it because the criteria are so vague. Critics warn moreover that some of the "cures" promoted to anxious parents were as worrying as the problem. A notice on the health ministry's website said that the safety of the electric shock technology was not clear, so use of the therapy should be stopped. The ban follows reports that Dr Yang Yongxin, from Linyi City's psychiatric hospital, in Shandong province, was using electroconvulsive therapy (ECT). According to the Beijing News, Yang said he had created xingnao ("brain-waking") therapy that involved sending a small current through the brain. He added the stimulation might cause pain but was very safe and would not harm children in any way. An earlier report by the newspaper Information Times claimed patients received ECT if they broke any of the centre's rules, which included eating chocolate, locking the bathroom door, taking pills before a meal and sitting on Yang's chair without permission. It said parents had to sign a contract before admission acknowledging that their child would be given ECT. The ministry of health asked Shandong's health department to stop the use of "electrical stimulation" for internet addiction while experts investigated. The researchers said both the safety and the effectiveness of the method was unclear. The ministry added that people wanting to conduct medical research required official approval as well as full consent from patients. But there are said to be hundreds of internet addiction treatment centres across China and others are believed to use similar methods. The centre's public relations chief said it had stopped using electric shock treatment for internet addicts due to the pressure of public opinion, but was still treating those people through other means. According to the Beijing News, when a reporter called the centre posing as a consumer, staff said the treatment fee for internet addiction was 5,500 yuan (£500) a month. Asked whether electric shock therapy would be used, the employee said it should be called "pulse therapy" and was only used in special circumstances. Tao Ran, who runs a well-known centre for curing internet addiction in the suburbs of Beijing, said: "There are about 300 million net users in China and 200 million of them are young people. More net users means more chances to be addicted to the internet. Young people are weaker in controlling themselves and when they find the computer games gripping they will quickly become addicted." He said his clinic treated about 200 patients a month for addiction, 80% of whom were aged 15 to 18 and 90% of whom were male." http://youtu.be/QKdWF41VMX8
