BioCorRx and 2B3D to pilot PTSD and addiction treatment solutions for veterans in metaverse setting

BioCorRx, a developer and provider of innovative treatment programs for substance abuse and related disorders, has announced that it is collaborating with 2B3D, a virtual, augmented, and mixed reality technology company, to pursue synergistic veteran care in the metaverse.

2B3D has launched a worldwide initiative to end veteran suicide though the use of their groundbreaking virtual reality software called VRx, which is capable of treating post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Veterans who have seen combat or feel isolated are already at high risk of suicide, but those with substance use disorders are more than twice as likely to die by suicide as other veterans, according to research published on behalf of the Society for the Study of Addiction.

Rob Bell, CEO and founder of 2B3D, said, “Our virtual reality solution for PTSD will be available to all veterans, but for those who suffer from drug or alcohol addiction, there’s only so much we can do with virtual reality alone. Through our collaboration with BioCorRx, their innovative treatment programs for substance abuse and related disorders will allow us to address those high-risk veterans.”

Tom Welch, EVP of BioCorRx, said, “We are excited to partner with 2B3D, a veteran-owned and operated team that has developed an innovative virtual reality platform for veterans in the metaverse. Those experiencing PTSD, many of whom may be veterans, often turn to drugs or alcohol to self-medicate feelings of fear, anxiety, and stress. PTSD changes brain chemistry in much the same way substance abuse and addiction do. Often, these disorders form at the same time and feed off one another. We believe that incorporating our comprehensive medication-assisted treatment (MAT); Beat Addiction Recovery Program which includes our proprietary cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) curriculum and peer support for substance use disorder with the advanced technologies of 2B3D metaverse platform, will offer veterans an enhanced treatment solution. We look forward to collaborating on the integration of our content into their metaverse to deliver a groundbreaking program with 2B3D shortly.”
