A new facebook addiction service has been launched in Dublin.

Psychologist Jason O’Callaghan is behind the initiative, which is being offered at the D4 Clinic.

O’Callaghan said that the service is necessary as “people are literally online constantly”.

“People are becoming increasingly addicted to social media because it is so freely available, even smokers or alcoholics can’t do it all the time but those addicted to social media live on their phones.”
