Can the brain be rebooted to stop drug addiction?

Scientists for the first time have identified long-term changes in mice brains that may shed light on why addicts get hooked on drugs—in this case methamphetamines—and have such a tough time kicking the habit. The findings, reported in the journal Neuron, could set the stage for new ways to block cravings—and help addicts dry out.

Since the brain is not a Microsoft product it may not need a reboot.

I would think hypnosis can also kick you of your drug habit.

Personaly I think I could see this thread going in several directions, such as rebooting the brain to keep people in line when they start to realise something is wrong with the way things are.

Anyone who was anti Government or thinks anywhere outside the box could possibly be worked over to make them fall in line.

Anyway what makes them think people would want thier drug addiction stopped?

I heard about the "brain reboot", but it had to do with pain control.

Ketamine Coma For Pain Control

There was an episode or two on the show House MD about it but there is actualy science behind it.

If I was addicted to crack, I would want a reboot. If I was addicted to booty, I Would not.
