NET Pilots in Scotland and U.S.A
 

Posted March 13, 2007

Since the death of our mother in 2002, those of us involved with NET have used our resources primarily to develop a small number of dynamic clinical projects in a number of different countries.

 

We have just concluded a pair of public pilot demonstrations of NET; one in Kentucky funded by the state organisation KRADD and focused on methamphetamine addiction, and one in Scotland funded privately and focused on heroin. However, both pilots dealt with poly-drug addictions, including heroin, methadone, cocaine, alcohol, cannabis, Valium and nicotine. The pilots were covered in the press, and links to articles can be found at  www.netdevice.net

 

Within Scotland, we have received early support from the Scottish Executive, the established rehab community (Phoenix Futures, Maxie Richards Foundation), and are receiving positive independent assessments from the Centre for Drugs Misuse Research (Prof. Neil McKeganey, University of Glasgow). 

 

We are presently pursuing several initiatives in Scotland, including proposals to treat portions of a prison population, provide drug-free rehab in the Glasgow area, and perform functional imaging of the brain following NET. In Kentucky, our proposed initiatives include a follow-on pilot funded by KRADD and the University of Kentucky in June '07, and functional imaging and nicotine cessation trials at the University.

 

In both countries, we are seeing the beginnings of a wider debate on NeuroElectric Therapy and drug-free detoxification.
