Summary of "Review: Non-invasive brain stimulation in behavioral addictions: insights from direct comparisons with substance use disorders."

Treatment models developed for substance use disorders (SUDs) are often applied to behavioral addictions (BAs), even though the correspondence between these forms of addiction is unclear. This is also the case for noninvasive brain stimulation (NIBS) techniques being investigated as potential treatment interventions for SUDs and BAs.
