A rapidly growing phenomenon so much as to have forced doctors to create a real recovery program in a rehabilitation center in California called Morningside Recovery.A structure of Newport Beach offers a special program for the treatment of patients who fail to stay away from your phone.
Dr. Elizabeth Waterman , a therapist of Morningside , said:
Studies show that two thirds of the population suffers nomophobia. For a couple of years this phenomenon has increased by 13%, keeping pace with the rapid evolution of technology and mobile devices.
According to the website of Morningside , the nomophobia (no-mobile-phone-phobia) is recognized when:
- It often puts a hand over your pocket where it is usually located on your phone
- You use the smartphone often, even in inappropriate places
- It constantly monitors your battery life for fear of running out in times of need
