This is really exciting stuff and I can only hope it becomes yet another very helpfull tool in meeting the substance abuse client where they are at in their struggle to recognize and be part of their own healing process thru the treatment of the disease of addiction .

The seminar put on by Janus Of Santa Cruz was informative and insightfull in many ways and its great to see such a powerfull turn out of concerened haeltha care and treatment providers from so many agencys of the Santa cruz county .

Treating the disease of addiction and alcohol;ism is an ever changing and progressive evelution in this modern day world and looking "out of the box" as with virtual reality therapy is perhaps just one answer to a question that requires many different solutions depending on the individual.

Anyone who has a relative who has suffered from addiction can appreciate how such a system might help with recovery. Try anything.

What is the reoffending rate? Didn't Jimi get convicted of a felony while alleging sobriety. I think I will pass.
