Considering the vast number of addicts requiring expensive, prolonged, low success rate
conventional drug addiction treatments,do you not find very very odd that this is not being used and that the vast majority of government officials are unaware of it and have zero interest in using it to cure addicts.

The devices could easily be mass produced for a few $ as the chips used are used in low cost throwaway toys...



Now that YOU ARE aware of are You GOING to get your goverment official interested in it?

Neuroelectric Therapy (NET) in Addiction Detoxification
Meg Patterson, M.D., F.R.C.S.E., Noel V. Flood, R.M.N. & Lorne Patterson, R.M.N.

NeuroElectric Therapy (NET) is a benign and rapid, non-pharmacological detoxification treatment for the chemical dependent, either in-patient or out-patient, using very small amounts of electric current transcranially, with electrodes applied above the mastoid process. The pocket-size stimulator is used continuously for 7 to 10 days (3-4 days for nicotine), without supplementary drugs. Within this treatment period it eliminates the acute symptoms and also ameliorates the Chronic Withdrawal Syndrome, which otherwise could last 18 months or longer, to a very substantial degree. By the end of treatment, 95% of 102 consecutive patients claimed they were free of craving, 75% that they were free of anxiety. NET has a reported drop-out rate of 1.6% over a period of seven years. The basis of this therapeutic success has been the marriage of precision clinical techniques to highly specific combinations of electrical current parameters, both developed over 20 years of reported clinical and research work. It is suggested that the mechanism of action may be the rapid restoration to normal of abnormal neurotransmitter levels by specific electrical signals. Clinical treatments and double-blind studies are briefly described and reviewed, with new data on sleep effects.
