Final: Healing addictions through virtual reality By Claudia Zapien

Virtual addiction therapy is a form of using the technology of virtual reality to allow a patient to visualize the damage made from additions and use that image to be the catallizing force for their addiction treatment. This type of treatment would be more of a preventative measure for patients who are in the beginning stages of their addition or patients who need a sort of motivating force to begin a treatment that will help them overcome addiction to alcohol,tobacco, illegal and prescription drugs. The therapy would not be the only form of treatment, but it will be accompanied by either drugs and /or counseling depending on the needs of each particular case.
