Methamphetamine Addiction Treatment Trial
Click Here to Register
The abuse of methamphetamines has been rising nationwide. According to the National Institutes
of Health, from 2011 to 2018, deaths involving methamphetamines rose from 1.8 to 10.1 per
100,000 men and from 0.8 to 4.5 per 100,000 women.  In 2020, an
estimated 1.5 million Americans were classified as having a methamphetamine use disorder.
Methamphetamines are engineered to cause the brain to release unprecedented quantities of dopamine.
It is far more addictive than heroin and does a more effective job of taking control of its
host. Like heroin, meth plunges individuals into a relentless cycle of getting money, getting drugs,
and getting high. Although methamphetamines are not as fatal as heroin, they cause brain damage,
heart damage, drastic aging of the skin and bones, and destruction of teeth. It also destroys the host's
personality, relationships, finances, and career. At the same time, it enriches the some of the worst
criminal elements on Earth.
The current standards for controlling methamphetamine addiction involve cognitive-behavioral therapy and
motivational incentives. At present, there are currently no government-approved medications to treat it
. We are testing an approach which combines hypnosis and virtual reality.
Our system works with your mind to contain and ultimately neutralize your addiction. It creates a
safe zone in your mind for drug-related thoughts and firmly steers you away from any contact with
methamphetamine. We need volunteers to test this approach.
What are we seeking?
We are seeking people who are primarily addicted to methamphetamines. They may be using methamphetamines alone or
in combination with other drugs.
What will the volunteers do?
The trial entails having volunteers download our video onto their smart phones and play it for a month,
using a set of VR goggles, as described here.
The video runs for 47 minutes, and volunteers can view it in the comfort of their own homes.
Volunteers will use this product in addition to following any other professional medical or psychiatric
advice which they have been given. Patients should not disregard their doctors' advice!
Where is the trial located?
Since the trial is over the Internet, there is no need to travel anywhere.
Is there a cost?
In this testing stage, our video is free to use. However, in order to test our software, the volunteers will
need to have a smartphone with a 4½" – 6" screen, measured diagonally. Volunteers will also need virtual
reality headsets with built-in speakers. For a full explanation of the requirements,
please click here.
Will I be compensated?
Everyone who participates in and completes this trial will have this software to use indefinitely and will be
entitled to use all future versions of it, free of charge.
Why do we think this video is worth testing?
Studies have shown that hypnosis is helpful in fighting addiction. Although there are few, if any, studies
on the effectiveness of hypnosis for treating current substances, such as crystal meth, hypnosis has been
tried on other highly addictive substances such as heroin.
For example, an Israeli study tried hypnosis therapy for 10 active heroin addicts for 10 weekly sessions.
All patients (100%) completely stopped use of any street drugs and results remained stable for 6 months
after end of treatment. Two years after end of intervention, 7 out of the 9 (78%) remained clean of use of
heroin. Another study of 70 adults compared hypnotherapy and psychotherapy in the
treatment of addicts. According to the study, "Significant differences were found on all measures. The
experimental group had significantly less discomfort and illicit drug use, and a significantly greater
number of [successful] withdrawals. At six-month follow-up, 94% of the subjects in the experimental
group who had achieved withdrawal remained narcotic-free."
Does the video have any known side effects?
What is my time commitment?
You must agree to use the video for about 50 minutes per day for a month in a quiet place. You can view it in
your favorite chair, on the couch, or in bed.
