A new study shows short-term cognitive behavioral therapy could be an effective treatment for internet addiction.

Researchers found that about 70% of men treated, entered remission. That's compared to the 24% who entered remission while being on a wait-list for therapy. The small study was published yesterday in medical journal 'Jama Psychiatry'. Researchers included patients who were addicted to gaming, social networks, pornography, online surfing or general internet use.
