Routine includes therapy, medication, acupuncture, sports Associated Press Updated: 9:52 a.m. ET July 1, 2005 BEIJING - The 12 teenagers and young adults, some in ripped jeans and baggy T-shirts, sit in a circle, chewing gum and fidgeting as they shyly introduce themselves. “I’m 12 years old,” one boy announces with a smile. “I love playing computer games. That’s it.” “It’s been good to sleep” says another, a 17-year-old with spiky hair, now that he’s no longer on the computer all day. The youths are patients at China’s first officially licensed clinic for Internet addiction, a downside of the online frenzy that has accompanied the nation’s breathtaking economic boom.
