“Talking, texting or playing games,” for six hours a day. Does that sound like addiction to you? Well, apparently it is.

Two kids in Spain, aged 12 and 13, were recently admitted to a mental health center to treat their addiction to cellphones. Their relatives were concerned that they were unable to function without their cellphone. So, to the loony bin with them.

They’ve been undergoing treatment for the past three months.

This is the first time that the mental health institution used specific measures to treat cellphone addiction.

How do you like that, cellphone addiction is real. Who knew?
