There’s a new kind of Rehab center opening up in the Netherlands — the world’s first treatment center exclusively for nail-biters!
Director Alain-Raymond van Abbe of the Institute for Pathological Onychophagy says he and his team have invented an aid to make nail-biting impossible and claims initial trials have been almost 100% successful.
Studies have shown that as many as 15 per cent of adults, 33 per cent of young children and 45 per cent of adolescents bite their nails. The treatment center fits a special device on the hands that allow normal activities but prevent nail biting, and at the same time gives patients extensive therapy and counseling to kick the habit.
