          How Dr. Phil’s Virtual Reality Tool Can Help Recovering Addicts Transition From Rehab To The Real World


          September 18, 2017

          “Anybody can be a star in rehab. The problem is transitioning back into the real world,” Dr. Phil says.

          To help recovering addicts make the transition from the structured rehab environment to the unsupervised world, Dr. Phil has created the virtual reality tool Dr. Phil’s Path to Recovery.

          TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: Dr. Phil, please solve our conflict!

          “When people get out of rehab, they face triggers, triggers for relapse, old friends, old hangouts, old habits. So, we created our own triggers, and we want these to become triggers for coping instead of triggers for relapse,” Dr. Phil explains. “And the way you do that is you create something that’s really distinctive that you can take with you; a distinctive voice, a distinctive experience, so you can get there and go, ‘Bang, this is exactly what Dr. Phil and I talked about. We knew I was going to be here. We knew I was going to face this temptation. We knew it was unavoidable, and I remember exactly, precisely what happened.’”

          Watch an example of how the virtual reality tool works in the video above.
