Scientists say that because traditional treatment for drug addicts, largely centered around so-called “extinction procedures” designed to sever memories tied with taking drugs to help patients control their cravings, often fail to work and recovering addicts usually relapsed after seeing objects associated with drug-taking like a needle or cigarette.
Some of the existing therapies try to help addicts unlearn their addiction and habit with techniques like showing them videos of people injecting and making them handle syringes while not under the influence. While these techniques reduce cravings at clinics, they are unsustainable after addicts return to their usual surroundings.
