Insan Firdaus (VU): Virtual Reality Exposure Therapy Biofeedback (VRET-BF) for Substance Use Disorder (SUD)
35 million people worldwide are diagnosed with Substance Use Disorders. Regrettably, only 1 in 7 people receive treatment.
One of the factors causing this problem is stigmatization, making them hesitant to seek help and worsen their condition.
We digitalized conventional therapy to provide an easy treatment toolkit for people struggling with substance addiction.
It must be discreet, personalized, and affordable. It should be easy to use and accessible anytime, anywhere.
The first step to find help can be a tough one to take, and it is hard to acknowledge that you are losing control. Our dream is to provide individuals, tools, and support to help their journey to recovery.
