Neuroscience research of addiction holds the promise of providing a number of novel treatment technologies that may significantly reduce the impact and prevalence of addiction and drug abuse.

As with any new technology, the impact that these novel developments have upon the individual being treated, and the rest of European society, will depend on how they are used.
