In this extended essay, experts address both the recovery and the long-term goal of healing from addiction, arguing that a full cure from drug addiction or habitual addiction can be achieved. Combining both the principles of systemic therapy and experience gained through years of counseling, they have developed a unique model called "in-depth systemic" therapy, which extends the classic model by introducing and expanding on the mental dimension. The central point of this work is the thesis that addicts themselves have to reorganize and restructure their own habitual ways of perception and cognition, with Vipassana meditation serving as the instrument to realize this transformation. Vipassana comprises an ethical lifestyle, concentration of the mind through meditation, and working progressively on one's one mental-somatic models, offering a unique and successful approach to the treatment of addiction.
