Clinical research is underway in Kentucky using NET for methadone, heroin and poly-drug abuse.

NeuroElectric Therapy (NET) is a specific form of Cranial Electrotherapy Stimulation (CES), delivering small pulses of electric current across the head to substantially reduce cravings for and ameliorate the effects of acute and chronic withdrawal from addictive substances. CES has been in clinical use in the USA since 1963 and in Europe since 1953, and is recognized by the FDA for the treatment of depression, anxiety and insomnia.

NET progressively reduces acute withdrawal symptoms (e.g. craving, runny nose, stomach cramps, diarrhea, nausea) during 4- 6 days of treatment. Craving levels are reduced by 89% on average, and the craving reductions are durable with no statistically significant change over 30 days. Also, detoxification is more rapid (5 days), completion rates are higher (79%) and acute withdrawal symptoms are more significantly reduced (77.5%) than with opioid replacement therapy.

Clinical results (Scotland, UK) indicate that the 90-day abstinence rates (60%) and 180-day abstinence rates (61%) for people treated with NET are substantially higher than those treated with opioid replacement therapy. Craving levels are reduced by 80% on average. In addition, detoxification is more rapid (8 days), completion rates are higher (82%) and acute withdrawal symptoms are more significantly reduced relative to opioid replacement therapy.
