The National Health Service is opening the first specialized clinic in the UK to treat children and young adults diagnosed with gaming disorder.
On May 21, a new clinic opened in Beijing for those suffering from gaming addiction. It might look like China anticipated that several days later the WHO would recognize gaming disorder as a disease.
