Using eye movement desensitization and reprocessing to reduce cocaine cravings

Description

We hypothesized that drug cravings, like disturbing thoughts, might be reduced through eye movement desensitization and reprocessing, so we used the procedures described by Popky (unpublished report) to conduct a preliminary evaluation of the effects of eye movement desensitization and reprocessing on cocaine cravings and drug use among opioid addicts who were maintained with methadone. We received the approval of our institutional review board and obtained signed informed consent forms from the subjects.
