Addiction to anything is not good because it ultimately makes your brain weak and affects negatively on your entire body. Many case studies are going on to treat various types of addiction, but it seems like China has gone further in this case. A report shows that in China surgeons are using a brain implant to remove the problem of addiction among people. Surgeons in China are using Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) technique under which a device is placed in humans brain to send an electric pulse to cure the problem of addiction. Using DBS has always been a topic controversy because in medical some surgeons think it can find the answers to why a person might be feeling depressed, and it can even cure Alzheimer also.
However, a report from China shows that a patient from Shanghai Ruijin Hospital had a DBS device implanted in his brain to cure problem of addiction. The patient said he was feeling better and that device had a positive effect on him. Now many people who are suffering from addiction might not want to put an electronic chip in their brain because that would be unrealistic for them. But under DBS technology things like this are common because it can ultimately be helping people to cure their problems.
Other than this one there are some other case studies in China which show that surgeons in here had tried to use DBS technology before and had some success with it. Now in the USA, there are at least two case studies in which doctors tried their best to use DBS but failed to do it because of uncertified risk. Even if these surgeons have got success there are still many case studies need to be done which will tell us how much this technology is safe to cure mental problems like addiction, depression, etc.
