Video Game to Help Alcoholics Fight Addiction - “Guardian Angel” In Pilot Program

Posted May 18 2010 6:26pm

This is a new tool being tried and sponsored by the VA and the University of Central Florida.  It is called “Guardian Angel” and it may be out for purchase within the next year.  It is not a substitute for therapy but is another tool than can be used.

This for some reason does not surprise me as everything to get the attention of the US consumer today in any area is all but a game.

The link above explains some of the games used in various areas of healthcare.  BD
