Nail biters rehab

The world’s first treatment centre for nail biters is to open in the Netherlands in March.

Alain-Raymond van Abbe, the new director of the centre, has said that he and his team have invented an aid to make nail-biting impossible.

“This is the first place ever to tackle this very serious problem,” he said. “We are expecting clients from all over the world.”

He said that the treatment has been successful for 98 per cent of the first trial patients.

According to officials at the centre, there are around two million people who bite their nails in the Netherlands.
