Electric shock therapy for addicts

Scotland starts a new trial of ECT (source):

A radical new treatment for heroin addiction is to undergo its first clinical trial in Scotland, it was announced yesterday.

Neuro-electric therapy – NET – has been billed as a safer, more effective alternative to methadone, the heroin substitute which is both addictive and damaging to health.

The creators of NET believe their detoxification therapy not only reduces withdrawal symptoms but also removes cravings.

  1. Hey there Jason! Nice info. I was really looking for newer and better drug treatment programs that doesn’t involve other potentially addictive drugs. My best friend has been undergoing some drug treatment programs for a couple of months now. I will definitely mention this new treatment to her mom and dad. -Michelle
