The use of neurotherapy to treat drug addiction is a relatively new technique. It is a form of treatment in which the patient undergoes a series of sessions with electrodes attached to their scalp, which send electrical impulses to the brain. These impulses are meant to stimulate certain areas of the brain, and in some cases, produce sensations that are similar to those experienced when using drugs.
This type of therapy has been shown to be successful for helping people quit smoking as well as reducing cravings for alcohol and other substances. There is also evidence that it can be used as an effective treatment for drug addiction in adolescents.
