Aversion Therapy

Aversion Therapy

This works by conditioning the individual to experience unpleasant symptoms when combined with undesirable behaviors such as addiction. Antabuse is probably the most well known of this type of therapy. It is a drug that people take if they want to give up alcohol. If they drink while on the medication, they will become seriously ill.
