The addiction-scenarios

Bar with slot machines

Visiting a bar can be an enormous challenge for patients. Visual and acoustic stimuli seem seductive and inviting. In this scenario, those affected make their way in step by step.

Alcoholism and gambling addiction

Visiting a bar can be an enormous challenge for patients. Visual and acoustic stimuli seem seductive and inviting. In this scenario, those affected make their way in step by step.

Description of the scenario

Your patient starts off in the entrance area of a bar and can either go to the bar itself or to the slot machines. Three slot machines are occupied and one is free. Depending on the treatment, the therapist has different options.

  • Click on “bar“: The slot machines disappear and the focus is on the bar.
  • Click on “gambling”: The slot machines are then more noticeable due to the lights and noises and thus should entice the patient.

For the patients, there are the following interaction possibilities:

  • They move through the room either by themselves or by clicking on the teleport points.
  • At the bar they can choose different drinks by clicking on a drinks list.
  • They can pick up the drink they have ordered and carry it or put it back.
  • They can activate the free slot machine by pressing a button and win something.
  • They can toast to other guests.

The therapist can trigger the following additional actions:

  • If the patient is standing at the bar, with one click the bartender can pull a pint and serve it to the patient. This can also be taken in their hand and carried to a table.
  • The other guests, including speech sounds, can be faded in or out.
  • At the slot machine, the therapist can trigger a win for the patient.
  • Individual conversations between guests and patients.

Besides going to the bar, shopping in the supermarket is of course also a critical environment that can be exposed in this scenario and the patient’s behaviour can be practised.

For the patients, there are the following interaction possibilities:

The following actions can be additionally triggered by the therapist:

  • Make all alcoholic drinks disappear at the touch of a button.
  • Instead, make a larger selection of non-alcoholic drinks appear.

Supermarket

VR Scenario Private Party

Toilet in a Night Club

Rest rooms are typical environments for cocaine consumption. In this scenario patients can take it or dispose it. So the focus is on both to train coping strategies against craving and change behavior.

Patients find themselves in a nightclub toilet. A thumping bass can be heard in the background. There are several “lines” of cocaine, a rolled-up banknote and a sachet of white powder on a large surface.

The following actions can be triggered by the patient:

  • The lines can be consumed with the banknote.

What else you should know - FAQs

Scenarios are computer-generated, fully interactive environments through which your patients can move, pick up objects and solve tasks.

What the patient does when in a scenario is up to the individual. There is no time limit.

In this way, the degree of confrontation can be increased individually by the patient, but also by the therapist. In some cases, a playful approach to situations that trigger anxiety or stress is also possible.

Therapists can actively intervene in the scenario on the laptop and control various changes or actions.
