Once you go WarCrack, you can't go back. IMO The psychiatrists are going to get sucked into the virtual vortex of doom and die a death of snack foods and eye strain. I was addicted to Runescape way back when, just quit and find something better to do with your life.
It's the stats tracking that does it, it goes the same for games like BF2142, and COD4/5 (until you get everything, then it's boring) but MMO's have no such thing as "beating the game" so you keep going and going and going. That's how they make so much money and get people addicted, which means more money.
This is like saying. Ok, I'll try and treat you for your coke addiction only when you are snorting because it's in your "preferred environment." I think the priority should be getting them to stop, I don't see how meeting them in-game to chat accomplishes that.

+1. But I do think that you need to first find them. Blizzard should give public awards for people who play too much, which would allow the "psych-squad guild" public knowledge of the true addicts. What better way to find the crack addicts in need than following around the dealer? It would practically become a new game just to avoid them!
I just don't get it, WoW is so lame, i can't understand how any one would pay money to play that game let alone become hopelessly addicted to it. Im sure this whole online therapy thing is just for show anyways, how much can they actually help these people when there still playing the game. I don't think blizzard gives 2 sh*ts about addiicted players, they are probably happy people have decided to give up there real lives for there virtual pay service reality.
"Mom I really really really NEED to logon to WoW. I have a 2 hours session appointment with the rapist.. uh I mean lvl 70 Therapist".. and so the-rapists and the-rapees went on to raid/rape Onyxia's Lair.
