The growing credibility in the medical community of hypnotherapy is undeniable. Hypnosis allows clients to be much more open to ideas and suggestions. In the hypnotic state, clients can become more inventive in problem solving on their own. Hypnosis as an adjunctive therapy for addiction is effective because it allows the client to be involved in his or her own treatment process. It allows them to explore their triggers for relapse, and to deconstruct a craving should one arise.
