PopSci: Can Virtual Reality Treat Addiction?

Quote:
"When the addicts enter the room, they haven't met the people inside. They've never been there before, but the setting is familiar, and so is the pipe on the table, or the bottles of booze on the ground. Soon enough, someone's offering them a hit, or a drug deal's going down right in front of them. "



"Rosenthal's research employs a methodology called virtual reality cue reactivity. Put simply, that means using virtual reality to trigger a reaction, then to monitor that reaction. In substance abuse treatment, that usually involves transporting addicts to a software artist's representation of a drug den or party and teaching them to deal with the situation. "

I hope they get funding so they can afford better graphics.

Ugh

Couldn't this same thing be achieved with actual role-playing?

Reminded me of an old video where they use primitive virtual reality to help treat a fear of spiders, this isn't the exact one I remember though similar https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=co7BWWoF-5I
