> The only sense that makes to me is that - yes - if you overstimulate and it is overly painful your body/brain will learn to fix itself, meaning if you have a grain of sense you won't take meth again!

Yes, that's exactly the idea. What happens in a stressed out brain with psyciatric disorders is that we go ahead and give ourselves too much of one neurotransmitter or another (through natural means) even after it's harming us and doesn't help, we develop dysfunctional moods trying to avoid facing whatever pain that needs to be grieved but never gets resolved. So this treatment forces the issue to resolution.

People in good mental health know not to take things to where they become counterproductive. They know when to grieve and how to 'get over' things so they don't all build up. It's this normal balancing that we need to get back to; being able to make the right descisions and move forward with life.

At least it's an interesting idea to consider the implications even if the treatment might not work, there could be something to this perspective.
