Immersing the client into enticing and difficult situations
It is challenging for clients to simply imagine what it may feel like to be tempted while in the safety of a residential treatment centre.
During abstinence from alcohol, cravings can be triggered by a scent, an environment, social pressure and/or any context previously associated with alcohol. This can cause a client to relapse.
To help prevent relapse, Cue-Exposure (VR) places the client in an environment that induces cravings while facilitating learning and cognitive reinforcement of new behaviour.
VR Helps to Recognize Addiction Triggers
Cue-Exposure (VR) therapy allows the client to take control of their drug or alcohol addiction and practice their coping skills in a controlled environment while gaining more insight into what environments and triggers will present a challenge upon graduation and return home.
Ultimately, Cue-Exposure (VR) therapy helps recognize your triggers and establishes new coping skills to support long-term recovery.
