Addiction AVERT, Rational Reflections 501(c) 3 non-profit
FREE download! Addiction AVERT is a substance abuse craving reduction technique that can help individuals challenge cravings in the immediacy by bringing up realistic events and situations that will happen if they choose to use drugs, alcohol or smoke and what they will lose. AVERT can be customized to help motivate an individual’s personal recovery program and works with a sponsor.
The organ that is diseased in addiction is the mid-brain which is the part of the brain responsible for our survival (food, sex, fight or flight). The cerebral cortex is responsible for logic, reasoning and moral functioning.
For the most part the cerebral cortex has power over the mid-brain but in addiction this top down control is lost. The mid-brain actually hijacks the cerebral cortex and makes logic, reasoning and morality a liability, allowing for continued use and the continuation of harmful consequences.
AVERT helps interrupt this process and restore the top down control needed to successfully interrupt the mid-brains cruel tool (craving); restoring the cerebral cortex leading to rational thinking, which leads to abstinence for the alcoholic and drug addict.
This app is for your use of motivation only and the use of it accepts that no liability may be held against Rational Reflections, any of its employees or related businesses and/or partners.

This really helps me put things into proper perspective with my clients. I help them create a scenario then have them use it when they want to use. It brings reality to their awareness helping them to make a better decision in the immediacy.
5 Star Review!!!
